wet dry filter question

I have the top part of my wet/dry filled with bio-balls the bottom part of the filter is LR. The water trickles through the bio-balls into the LR. The water line is such that the LR is submerged and the bio-balls are not. I was thinking this would be beneficial from a bacteria standpoint. Does anyone see a problem with this? I have enough LR in my fuge that I can make it all LR I also have enough bio-balls to take out the LR and put it in my fuge if need be.

Sounds good to me. Most bioballs are desugned to work aerobically, which is why they have water trickeled over them. LR works best anaerobically, which is why it is submerged.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Heh, couldn't have said it better myself.

Sounds pretty much identical to my setup.
