So this is live rock inside the filter where you would otherwise put a filter bag?

Yes, many people replace their bio-media (bio-balls, ceramic rings etc.) & mechanical media (sponges, pads etc.) with live rock rubble.

Yep it works, I had to remove it, and set the rubble in my fuge though. The motor was giving out on that HOB filter.
