My Marineland c160 canister filter has been making noise for a few days since my last wc when I unplugged it. I finally got around to opening it up to take a look and it turns out the impeller shaft is broken. The little ceramic thing snapped right in half. I put it back together anyways to run it while I track down a replacement but it doesn’t run at all anymore. I want to keep the media alive in the meantime, do you think I can just float it in the tank? I have two HOBs in addition luckily so I’m thinking the little plastic media balls will float at the top and bounce around in the flow. I’m looking for reassurance that this isn’t a stupid idea lol. Also does anyone have any replacement impeller hacks? I’m not thrilled about spending $13 for a ceramic lollipop stick lol.
