The media in my XP3 is generic media that you can get anywhere. Ceramic noodles, porous rock (like pumice) and floss. The baskets will accept whatever you place in them. I often just use loose filter floss and wad it into my Eheim 2215 instead of using their white circular pads, which are hard for me to locate here. I think most filter media can be interchangeable, even to the point of making your own HOB cartridges using the plastic frame and covering it with floss yourself.

For me I get my shipment usually within 3-4 days. I think they ship from Texas and NY (I have received packages from them in those two locations, anyway).

Micron Filter

Hi,
I got one question, I have a 37 gallons with 6 severums (Gonna have problem later) 2 jewel Cichlid and a Electric Yellow, most of them are like 1"-1.5". Right now I have a 125 Penguin Bio-Wheel Filter and a Fluval 204 running. I'm looking to get some kind of Micron filter, and there seem to be 2 choice, a Vortext or a Magnum with Micron, which one should I go with? I heard it isn't a good idea to let the Vortext run for long time?
Thanks

The Ehime 2217's box claims it to be good for up to about a 160 gal tank.

I looked at getting the marineland bio-wheel pro 60 as an addon for it, but it costs closes to the same as a emperor 400, which gives you 2 bio-wheels, and an additional increase in water flow and filtering capability.

Also petsmart in Canada has the emperor 400 on for 1/2 price this week.
