    Any recommendations on really cheap floss? Paying $3 per set of floss seems kind of ridiculous. Preferably something that can remove very small particles.

    Maybe a sponge? Cut it to the size you need?

    A sponge or polyfil

    I buy poly-fil from Walmart. It works pretty good except sometimes there's a single little strand polyester floating around in the tank and I think the fish might eat it. I don't think it would hurt them so much if they did tho. They'd probably just poop it out.

    The main thing with that stuff is it has to be 100% polyester fiber without any additives.

    Hadn't considered a sponge. I'll definitely give that a try. Thanks!
