Best Micron Size of Media Filter Bag for Activated Carbon?
I am NOT going to buy the carbon bags made specifically for the Penn Plax Cascade 1500 Canister Filter anymore...too expensive!
I am going to get some ESV Activated Granular Carbon...and put it in a filter bag. Now I find there are several sizes of pores of the Filter Media Bags:
Larger - 800 micron
Smaller - 300 micron
Filter bags cost the same...and idea which size to go with??
I am thinking the larger 800 micron...and I think it would see more water flow and less chance of getting gunked up.
