The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.
It's not easy for most people or other "regular" fish keepers to understand why we maintain this type of collection and spare no expense on this fascinating hobby. Hopefully, through this site and discussion forums we can encourage the next generation of Monster Fish Keepers to have the same passion and love we have for the hobby and our Monster Fish.

Because you want most of the large particles out by the time it makes it to the bio media as those need to stay clean er so that there is more opportunity for bacteria instead of garbage. Personally I love the fluval media. Thinking about getting some seachem matrix for bio media instead of fluval's just for the fun of it on my new Nov 29, Messages: Pre-filter media is useless in the FX5 or FX6.
The water passes through the sponges first. To put pre-filter media after sponges is not going to do anything beneficial. You must log in or sign up to post here. Share This Page Tweet. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account? No, create an account now. Yes, my password is:More...
