    Default Ceramic Noodle question

    0 Not allowed!
    I have a RENA PX3 that ive been running for about 3 months now. I have no nitrates, or anything. It is also running with a AC70.
    I have the bio stars that came with the machine, along with a box of Fluval ceramic noodles. I just recently added another box of the fluval noodles to boost the biologic filtration. Is this a good idea? Will it boost the filtration? Ive been being neurotic about making sure everything is nice and healthy in my tank so I wanted to keep adding to the filter. I know that the more stuff, the slower the output, but does anyone else use that many? Thanks guys!!!

    Google is your friend. Use it!!!

    The more bio filtration you can stuff in there [within reason] the better.Keep in mind the sponges in the bottom are also bb factorys.

    Ok, so I have a basket that only has another sponge in it, maybe ill add another sponge or some noodles or something to that one too. I love how customizable the canister filters are!!!!

    The best set up for these is to have 4 sponges in the bottom basket. 2 course then 2 fine.this gives a huge amount of mech filtration and bb at the same time.

    Yeppers I have all of them in the bottom. I used the micro polisher for a while but I wasnt too impressed with those.

    Sponges are my choice for filtration. I pack all my HOB filters with sponge inserts for AC filters, whether they're AC or not.

    i love sponges! all my hob filters get sponge no matter what! for my canister filters i actually used a homemade hybrid! i take a sponge designed for it and i cut it in half basically. then i take pantyhose and put a decent amount of pillow bating in. stretch it into a disk shape and put it between the sponges in the bottom and boom! haha sounds weird but works amazingly well for me.
