OK, so I have an Aquatech filter that is missing the beneficial bacterial pad. It's the one that is supposed to stay there forever, and just be rinsed when needed and reused again. Aquatech doesn't sell these individually, so I'm stuck without one.
I'm using a plain white cutout pad in place of the beneficial bacteria pad, but the problem is that it is starting too fall apart (I believe they are only good for about a month). I want something that won't fall apart and that can be reused for at least a year, preferably longer.
I was looking at the AquaClear Foam Insert right here AquaClear 110 Power Filter Media | Pet Solutions
and I was thinking maybe I could get this and cut it to fit my Aquatech 20-40 Gal Filter.
Is there someone out there that has this type of filter that can tell me how long these last before needing to be replaced? Or maybe there is something better I can use that someone can tell me about. All feedback is appreciated
