Ever use a Poly Filter?

If you have ever used or heard anything about Poly Filter pads what do you think? Anything to watch out for when using them? Thanks

You can use those or micro bags unless your trying to control phosphates or ammonia something on that matter.

This may help you when you get them:
Poly Filters will remove phosphate and heavy metals, and actually provide an indication of existing problems by changing color. Blue for copper. Orange for iron. Green for ammonia. Dark brown or grey when exhausted.
