Penguin User's Filter Options
I found out over the weekend (I'm slow I know
) that Marineland makes filter frames and pads so you can "roll your own". I ordered a few and they arrived today. The frame and pads are thicker then the throw aways. You use two pads and sandwich any media you use in between them. The pads appear to be able to last a long time. The frames were $2.79us each and a pack of ten pads are 3.69us so it should work out to be cheeper using these as opposed the ready make throw aways. The only thing thats a little weird is the filter frame butts right up against the media baskets forcing all the water thru the media basket unlike the throw aways where there is a half inch gap between the pad and the media basket.
Has anyone used these?
