I am starting a new set-up for aquatic turtles, and will be using a large "saltwater type" biofilter(with coralife bio-balls). The last time this filter was used the animals had an infectious shell disease that I would obviously like to avoid this time around. Would it be ok to sterilize with a bleach solution or should I boil all the media? Additionally, there are the bubble reducing sponges that would either need to be replaced or sterilized. They are rather crumbly as it is, so I'm leaning towards replacing them. No idea where to find replacements, however. The only tag on filter says "Aqua-Crylic". Are they still around? Any info or advice would be great, and much appreciated.
