How to add more media to Eheim?
I am going to add more ceramic rings to my 2215. Is there a way to do this without hurting the bacteria?
No one around here sells Eheim products so can I buy the large pieces of filter pads (not Ehiem brand) and cut them to size to use in the filter?Jennifer90 gallon -fishless cycling started 4/18/08

How much media do you have in there now? The ceramic rings are not really the location of the bulk of the bacteria in an Eheim Canister. The sintered glass product Efi-substrate is where you will find the bulk of the bacteria in the Eheims. If you want to add more media to the filter I would suggest adding more of the Efi-substrate if anything. How much room do you have in the filter for adding stuff?
As for the filter pads, you can get the Eheim pads on www.bigalsonline.com for a great price. However if you want to buy bulk bat and cut it to size you can do that as well.
