Last week I put a question up on the forums. I decided to add polyester batting to the filter to remove fine particles, and thinking about where to put it- after the sponge, before the ceramic bio cubes- made me question how I've arranged all the media in there. I drew a few quick pictures to ask about the flow-
General consensus was that it goes both ways- but the picture I put up of my current media arrangement also got me some feedback that I have it in there wrong. For my particular model, the box shouldn't be crammed full of media, it needs space behind it for the water to spread out and flow through all parts of the filter panel. I felt terrible, and embarrassed, to know that I've been using it wrong all this time- over a year.
