Be sure to rinse any pads in SW
daily to remove organics. The build up will hinder water quality. Also FWIW
, the Zeo will not be effective in a SW
environment. In my research and info exchange with others, it does not perform the same ion exchange you would see in a FW
environment. The Zeo becomes ammonia saturated quite quickly and then becomes a "bacterial source" as they will be attracted to the NH3
. It will do more to hinder than help in this situation.
RE: Polyfilter, be sure it is a true poly pad and not simpley filter floss, they are not remotely the same.
