So I set up the "Lee's economy corner filter" with a layer of floss, some seachem biological substrate, and another layer of floss. It sinks, but is so close to nuetral boyancy that it drifts around a bit. I added about 5 marbles (thanks FancyGuppyGuy), now it stays put.

So how much bubbling should I allow this to have? It is the kind that does not require an airstone (I wanted it the simplest possible). Do I want to set it so that there are gaps between the bubbles that come out" or can I have a near steady stream of bubles. Which Would provide more flow through the filter, gaps or near steady stream? Since the air pulls the water out the exhouast of the corner filter, I was thinking I needed some gaps to ensure that I wasnt just circulating air through the filter?

Edit: I decided to put this question on its own thread
