Hi i was just wondering how to build your own filter media. im seeing marineland biowheel filter media looking pretty expensive.

Hi sgh.What i do with my ac 50 is purchase a bio bag for 89 cents and a pound of carbon for 20 dollars.I also purchase filter floss or polishing pads for pretty cheap and put them in the media basket.I dont have a marineland filter but i think there is extra room in those filters to shove extra media in.

I buy the Marineland blue bonded filter pad sheet and cut it to size to fit in my filters. It's pretty cheap, and one package can last me years:
