Are all those air bubbles coming out the return or do you agitate your water?

No that's fine HOBs do that. Now if you had all that air coming out the can filter then it would be an issue.

Just out of curiosity.. why did you go with a pillow instead of just bulk stuffing? I would be a little worried about flame retardants, bacteria inhibitors, etc.

I just took advice from a fellow aquariumnist. I was thinking about those things and it never crossed my mind to ask. So whats the difference between bulk stuffing and pillow stuffing. And where could I find it?

Thanks for the input by the way

You can get pillow stuffing anywhere. Walmart target etc. I get mine at hobby lobby a giant bag of it is less then $3
Next time you go looking for it ask for a bag of poly-fill

I was just calling it bulk stuffing, pillow batting, pillow stuffing etc. Just check the bag and make sure it is 100% polyfill/polyfiber.
