Foam or poly

Foam or poly fil, poly pads, etc? Which have you found to be more effective and efficient at removing small particles from your tank?

Poly will catch finer particles for the most part. Depends on sponge but most are fairly coarse.
If you want the superior sponge check out 'poret'.
I use regular sponges in my HOBs and have no problems.

Plus one on that.

I'm just trying doubling up thickness on a fine pore sponge to see if it will substitute.
