This is ironic...
I have been looking for a simple picture of pot scrubbies, because I am currently in the process of buying vast amounts as biological filtration for my ponds, and turtle habitat. I have been going from dollar store, to dollar store, as I need them CHEAP. The employees at these stores have different definitions of "pot scrubbie", so a picture would just cut thru the confusion. Tonight, I checked back on this thread...and found the perfect picture of pot scrubbies! Thanks!
I do use the loose polyester "pillow stuffing" in mesh bags in some of my filters. I have not tried the batting yet, but I will as soon as I use the last of this blue/white stuff. At least the batting is all one color...no more confusion!
Yes, I asked the owner of my favorite LFS
. He said the blue was more coarse, but his manager jumped in and said it was the white. I am using this stuff in my pond filter, which is hard to get to. So using it the "right" way is fairly important. If it clogs sooner than it should, that would be bad. I think I will just have to bite the bullet and get used to checking on it more often.
Any additional votes would be welcome!
