I wouldnt have ever thought of something like this if I didnt read it here on fishlore...now that's about all I use for filter media other than the tanks I run carbon in ....such a great savings for sureMeGustaUnaPez926 said:The great thing is I am most likely never going to make a pillow again, so that was just sitting there.

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 stuffingShawnie said:once 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!
Shoot... Should I take it out then? It's flame resistant...Butterfly said: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 stuffing
It's supposed to be a video, I see it just fineMeGustaUnaPez926 said:Um, whiskey hill, was there a picture that was supposed to be attached to that, because I'm not understanding...
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.MizRamzi said: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?
