The great thing is I am most likely never going to make a pillow again, so that was just sitting there. I feel like such a dork, but I'm really excited about this!!!
That's what I use also Besides dyes and perfumes make sure it doesn't have flame retardants and mildew retardants in it. Just the plain stuffingonce you can get to a store, go to walmart or any craft store and buy a huge bag of polyester stuffing for a pillow ..make sure no dyes or perfumes and you can get a bag for $4 or so that will last you forever!

Most of us don't use charcoal unless removing meds from our tanks. It lasts such a short time before it quits works that it's not worth replacing. charcoal doesn't kill the bacteria but it doesn't remove ammonia either.I've noticed that no one mentions the use of charcoal with their media. Is it really not necessary? Does it kill the healthy bacteria? Is it just for removing ammonia?
One thing to be conscious of when using custom media with the a biowheel is that it can impede the wheel from spinning if it gets clogged or if it settles from how you put it in.
