it came with a biowheel looking thing to fit inside the blue media pad.....should I add this to let it pick up the good bacteria off my biowheels???
I also have the Marineland Magnum. I run it with the white diatom filter inside. I find that for me it works really well at "polishing" the water, keeping it crystal. +1 to Harri as far as the plants & substrate providing the bio filer. Just my 2 cents.
Glad you got your problem solved!
