fluval 2 plus

Hi
Does anyone have any ideas for what can be used inside this type of filter(fluval 2 plus) instead of having to keep buying Polyester pads? Any ideas welcome

This may or may not help. I bought a large polyester pad for outside pond filters and cut it to size for my internal filter. I don't know the fluval hence the ambiguity on whether this will help you. The large pad was only £10 and measured approx 2 foot square. ( from maidenhead aquatics).

i only use the pond filter stuff aswell..saves loads of dosh and last for ages.it's in my 2 + and forms 50 % of the media in my 405 canister...works a treat.no throwing away of media means money saved and bacteria stocks kept up...if you are going to put this in your filter,seed it with the old media by squeezing it into a bowl with some tank water.then let new stuff soak up some of the crud...

i got my sponge form swallow aqautics but all shops should stock it.available in different grades.i use the semi fine green sponge..

good luck
