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

    What do i need to have myself a custom filter media?

    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:
