Posted this question under the "Freshwater Aquarium" section and had one reply from a guy with a different type of filter. So here is another try.
Do you have a FX5 filter? If so how often do you break it down to clean it and what are you useing for media in it? I am asking these questions because i noticed today the flow is not near as strong as it used to be. I do not care if i hcae to clean monthly but I was expecting to only have to tear into it about once every 3 months....
I am useing it on my 125G Cichlid tank with 21 fish in the tank.
Of course the foam on the outside of the trays.
Bottom tray = Ceramic Rings
Middle Tray = Filter Fiber (debating switch to biomax to give more good bacteria growth)
Top Tray = Chemi Pure (will be switching to purigen soon)
What do you all think? If you use Purigen how much do you use? I do not want to put too much into the filter and slow down its flow.
