Is the a particular brand of filter floss that you like using with the RS filter media cup?
Go to your local craft store and buy the polyester pillow stuffing
You can get it at Wally World on the Cheap. put Matrix in the bottom of the cup and just filter flossin the top.
I have been using this for years.. get it at Walmart for like $5 a bag in the sewing section. US made with no chemicals or fire retardants
Same. I stick carbon in the middle for some unknown reason. Seems to me that carbon on the bottom is a better play. I have no idea why I decided to put it in the center?!?!
When you order the RS filter media cup they give you a free media bag for the carbon which I would place on the bottom of the cup and naturally the rolled up floss on top. I know that there are all different qualities of carbon sold, is anyone using the Red Sea REEF-SPEC carbon? I know it is a little pricey but I LFS said it was excellent.
Frankly I avoid going to Walmart, a few months ago I went there and someone backed into my car's rear light and that cost me a few hundred dollars to replace.
I found these 2 media rolls on Amazon and they both received 5 stars from the reviews which I like to use as a guide when purchasing products for the first time. Do you think the thickness makes a difference as one is 3/8-1/2 inch and the other one is 3/4-1 inch thick?
The thicker roll has 461 reviews and 90% of them are 5 stars.
I agree and try to avoid Walmart like the plague I’m retired and living on a modest pension so I force myself to go because I can save a lot on some of the things I need and they support US manufacturers..
That amazon floss looks fine except for the price, I would go with the thinner stuff because it won’t clog as fast and you can always fold it over to increase thickness if needed.
This is what I use for floss. It’s cheaper at Walmart though.
I think for my needs floss in a roll is how I want to go.
That's what that bag is for?!
I would assume you can place the carbon inside.
I've been holding onto them and for some reason I hadn't thought of that.
I intend to cut the floss and roll it up and place on top of the media bag for the carbon which I would place on the bottom of the cup, which thickness will better serve my purpose, 3/8-1/2 inch or 3/4-1 inch thick?
