Hi everyone, I'm new here, obviously, and am getting back into fish after a few years. I've set up a 20 gal
fresh tank and have a cycled 5-15 Aqua-tech hanging in it...I know it's not enough, which leads me to my question. I was also given another 5-15 along with a 10-20, both like new except that the bio filter media is gone. Seeing as these are essentially Walmart filters, I can't seem to locate replacement parts. Ideally, I'd get a bio media piece for the larger filter and then put a sponge filter on the intake as well. I simply don't have the cash for much at this point in my life though I could possibly spring for another, better filter like a Whisper perhaps. Any thoughts on substitutes for media, or would it simply make more sense to get something a little better? It will just be a community tank with your everyday tetras etc. I've already done salts, Eheims, big tanks etc so I don't need to impress myself but just need serious bang for the buck!!!
Btw, my last name is really 'fish'...seriously!!
