    Nart is a GREAT guy and a good friend of mines! Darn I didn't know he was selling a filter! If you have any questions try and ask him, I think he would be more than glad to help you out!

    My recommendation is to run it with rock rubble or Matrix bio-media, carbon, and chemi-pure blue.
    As long as you don't run sponges or filter floss inside it you should be fine.
    You can also run a pre-filter at the intake and just clean that every week when you maintenance it.
