I was just wondering if anyone who was familiar with Aquaclear filters knew if you could pack a HOB
filter like the Aqueon ones or Tetra Whisper EX filters like you would an Aquaclear filter.
Aquaclear is filled with horizontal layers, usually a sponge on the bottom and a sack of biomedia in the middle. Other layers are up to you.
However, the other HOB
filters from Tetra and Aqueon use cartridges. It's basically a filter bag with carbon in it on a rigid plastic frame that you insert vertically into the filter cavity.
Is it possible to pack these hob
cartridge filters the same way you would pack the Aquaclears? Does the water circulate the same way through all the layers if I did this? I have all three of these filters. For the Tetra Whisper EX and Aqueon filter, I would like to pack them like my Aquaclear. Would it be viable?
Let me know what you think
