I'll figure something out, for now I'm using the glass since I don't have fish jumping.

@Gregcoyote - Thanks, I saw something someone made out of eggcrate and pvc leaving the center open here on the forums. I'm gonna try to find that again.
Cut the plastic ..that's what I did.

I just got a batch of the stuff yesterday and will be building the netting over the next day or so and then will post up pictures in my thread asking about options for covers.

Now that I got that part (tank cover) in this thread and I can go back to it, Can someone go back a few posts and give your thoughts on the poly filter post?

Thanks

Buffy i put big hand fulls of the poly-fill in my E- 400 i pull it out and rinse it in the PWC water and put it back only time i toss it it when it starts to fall apart. As for the Can. i dont use them so hopefully some one who does will chime in

I'm not sure of everyone else but in my 405 when running FW I would put the coarse material in first to get out the large pieces, then I would put in my fine filter material, then I would have bio media (in my case ceramic rings).

You want the biomedia to have the cleanest water, so ywp, like stated above use filter floss or pads before the biomedia.

Hope that makes sense lol
