U.K HOB Supplier

Hey TFK,

I'm thinking about buying a HOB filter to use as a DIY Refugium (with a little LR and chaeto) for a extra filtration.

I've read on here a lot about the aqua clear model which seems really good. However my problem is that I'm struggling to find a website which sells them in the U.K as my LFS does not.

When I do stumble across a HOB in the UK they are not transparent plastic (like the aqua clear) which is something I need for the chaeto to be successful. I will need to use a light/LED.

is there any U.k residents who can point me in the right direction?

would it help at all to include carbon media if using this type of filtration?

I would not run carbon in a SW tank. Its been known to cause HLLE in fish. You can run it from time to time, but not 24-7. Try Purigen or Chemipure Elite instead.

Thanks again,

I did a bit of reading up on the products listed and i like the sounds of Purigen most.

Will be be fine to run along side LR and chaeto?
