    I have an Aqueon 20 gal filter on a 10 gal tank. My question is am I locked in to buying there filter elements , Or can I buy my own carbon and other products in bulk and put them in to the aqueon. If I can not what type of filtration device do I need to be able to buy bulk carbon and replenish the filter media myself.

    Thanks, Mark

    Hi racer welcome to fishlore.When i had an aqueon filter i used to slice the top of the cardridge open and ad a bit more carbon.You can also stuff a bit more filter floss behind the cartridge.
