Bioballs and Refugium

Yeah, anything from marble size to golf ball size is what I shot for. I would leave the trickle down plate in place.

IMO losing the drip plate was the way to go. To reduce noise and bubbles.

You want to try to distribute the water flow as randomly as possible. But I haven't had one of these filters in a long time. They can be a bit loud as I remember.

Keep your rock under water at all times.
