    I looking for a spray bar for my filter. I discovereda small plastic bottle , the type used for travelling. This fitted snuggley on the filter.
    so a few holes drilled , instant spray bar :)
    I then saw a youtube video about moving bed filters. So Ifilled the bottle with cut drinking straws.
    Does anyone think this will work. Its just as extra filtration.

    Will try to get apicture up soon. Its basically just a small bottle stuck on the outflow of my internal filter. Does a good job diffusing the flow

    Ooo it sounds fun. Remember they may not "move" to well at first until they get some bb on them.

    If you are using you internal as a biological filter though i don't really think their would be much benifit unless you was to use you internal as a mechanical.

    Just a quick update, the straws I used in the small bottle have a nice coating of BB. So it seems to be working . Ive no swapped the bottlee for a larger food storage box (500 ml ) got a lot more staws :)
    Still no photos sorry
