Used Emperor 400

Hiya,

I got two used emperor 400 filters with my 135 gallon second-hand tank. Should I replace the used biowheels or replace them with new ones?

I don't even use the biowheels to be honest, I just take them off. It's a gimmick IMO.

If you do want to use them, definitely get some new ones - who knows what's living in second hand ones.

Ok, thanks! I have been debating while I clean the filters and tank!

I think the bio wheels are effective in one way. They make a lot of nitrate which would be bad, but in heavily planted tanks, the nitrates are like food for them1
