Hello,

I just bought a aquaclear 50 filter and i'm just wondering if I could place three foam pieces in the filter instead of the biomax and carbon?

Also would bacteria grow good on foam?

Yes ... and Yes ... if that's what you want to do.

EDIT: I would just make sure you arrange the foams from bottom to top - courser to finer.

You can, but filter foam doesn't house as much as ceramic rings or pumice, so if you have a heavy stocking, it might not be enough.

I personally recommend lava rock for media, it works super well.
