So today i received my new bio media for my JBL CrystalProfi 500 canister filter,
as i have decided to change all the media in this filter which is on my 6x2x2 tank
along with a Otto PF-450G canister filter.
3X CerMedia MarinePure 1 litre 22x38mm Spheres.
Mr.Aqua,Porous Ceramic Rings Medium size 15mm x 15mm 5L.
Started off by washing the media in buckets with the garden hose to remove all dust
particles and loose debris,then soaking it in 10 litre buckets with seachem prime for
about an hour.
As there is about a 2 inch cavity under the 1st stage basket i put some old ceramic rings
in 2 media bags to fill the void.
1st Stage Basket:
The first basket consists of 3x25mm media sponges 2x coarse sponges (15ppi) than a fine sponge (35ppi)
2nd Stage Basket:
The 2nd basket has 33 CerMedia MarinePure Spheres along with a hand full of the Mr.Aqua rings,I might
change this later for more MarinePure as i think i can get another 6 to 8 spheres in this basket.
I still have 33 spheres left but will need this to upgrade my Otto PF-450G at a later date.
3rd Stage Basket:
The third basket is holding the Mr.Aqua,Porous Ceramic Rings along with another coarse sponge (15ppi)
I know that peoples method of placing the media in stages differ,but i found that this was the best
way for this filter as how the media is placed, and i am up to any suggestions or any thoughts as a better
way,the filter seems to be performing well and only time will tell if this media has improved this biological system.
I hope you found this interesting...Regards Pirarucu.
