I just put the filtermax 3’s on both my fx4’s in my 125. Is there anything I need to know about these pre filters? I’ve never used prefilters before but was told to run them bc the fx series and sand don’t seem to mix. I really like how they look minus seeing the debris on the sponge. I’m about anal and will want to clean them everyday. But I know that wouldn’t be good for BB on them. Anyways just wanted to hear some opinions or any tips on these prefilters

The only pre filter I have is poly fil. I just put a generous amount on the top and use that to catch the garbage.

I have sand in my 90g that has the FX4 but I’ve not had any problems with them together.

I'm running an FX4 with PFS and have had no issues. The intake is about 6 inches off the bottom of a 46 Bowfront. No pre-filter.
