Well I can't afford a good canister or pre-built sump at the moment
But i can DIY, been reading and looking at setups
the only thing holding me is media,
I have seen may you-tube videos where may people use the one scrubber from walmart as bio media..... rather then bio balls....
but what about stage 1? I'll have a filter for larger stuff over the intake
i would like 3 stages, 1 = filter 2= bio 3= polishers (witch i assume just filter smaller particles
. micro fiber?
I hate cloudy water
would prefer no to buy form the fish store if i can find the same thing for less.
maybe a pool filter place?
