  1. Default My AC20 biomax isnt submerged completely

    Just wondering if it is supposed to be. The aquaclears have three filter media: the sponge, the carbon, and the biomax. I replaced the carbon that came with it with a Chemi-Pure filter medium which is supposed to last for months. The problem is that it takes up more space and pushes my biomax filter halfway above the water.

    Is this a problem? I know the biomax is supposed to help out beneficial bacteria. If its only halfway submerged, will it not work as good?

    Biomax doesn't 'help out' the BB, It is where it lives, The portion out of the water is not available and this literally and effectively reduces the biological filtration capacity of your filter by half.

    Reverse the positions of the chemi pure and bio-max.

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    For a little more clarification, if its wet, and stays wet, you're okay. If its just out of the water and completely dried out, it isnt doing anything for your BB.
