I believe he meant "the"

The white filter cartridge is fine in there, I would just get a bag of 100% poly-fill from Walmart or some kind of craft store and stuff it between the last cartridge and the biomax.

It filters out fine particles, it's sold at fish stores, but more expensive

Thank you all Will be ordering the new filter media soon. One quick question, as I stated I'm wanting to get a pre-filter for the intake (I plan on getting some shrimp) would this be alright or is there a better option?:
Fluval Edge Pre-Filter Sponge - Filter Media - Fish - PetSmart
And will it restrict the water intake at all? (I could always cut it to be thinner if needed I guess)
