I just bought a used eheim 2213 for 40 bucks. Everything works great except there is no media basket. However, I have heard that some people prefer removing it anyways.
So my questions are :Since I will have to make my own filter to separate the media, what do I need to know about making my own? I heard pillow casing is good to use, but is that what I would put at the bottom of my canister as well as separating the two medias? (or is mechanical filter something else)
If someone could tell me everything I need for the canister and in what order to put it in, you will be my hero.
