I have a 55 gallon tank that came as a kit from all glass/tetra. The heater failed this week and I replaced it with a 250W Visi-Therm Stealth heater and while I was at it and had some extra cash I bought a Aquaclear 70 HOB
filter to add to my filtration. My plan is to eliminate the Whisper 60 that came in the kit with a second Aquaclear 70 down the road.
I followed what others had done in the media basket by purchasing a second foam filter for the bottom, placing some filter floss between the foam and the Biomax media.
My first question is does the Biomax media need to be completely submerged ??
Currently I would say 75-80% of the bag is completely covered at this time.
My second question would be when I purchase the second unit to replace the Whisper 60, are there other options for media I should be investigating ??
Thanks in advance
