I don't know, but I just use the frames and rubber-band floss to them, since I don't need carbon. That's the cheapest way to go.

Cheapest price on filters would have to be Bigalsonline.com

I found a new product called SuperCartridge. It is a replacement cartridge for Marineland and Tetra filters that has more surface area for bacterial growth and a removable foam insert that is impregnated with carbon for chemical filtering. I have used them on my Penguin BIO-Wheel 170 and 330 filters for about 3 months now. The even better news is that the replacement foam inserts are much cheaper than buying Marineland's Rite-Size cartridges. You can read more about them here.


I bought them online at Drs. Foster & Smith. Here is a link to that website.
