Why is this stuff so exspensive. Home Depot is charging $79 for 5- 2' x 4' pieces, which they do not have in stock. Amazon and Zoro are even higher priced. Where do you get your egg crate for a reasonable price?
Matala, from what I've read, is very firm compared to normal aquarium filter sheets.What is the Fiat of filter foam? Might it be that filter foam is simple enough that you don't need the Cadillac? I have no idea - I am an egg crate guy
That's an understatement.Matala, from what I've read, is very firm compared to normal aquarium filter sheets.
Yes, that's what I've been doing on Exos I use ABG in. The foam is the 'void space' -- it functions exactly as does the air space in an egg crate drainage layer. The depth of the foam is dependent on the water removal situation; I've bottom drilled the last couple, and so I've used 1" (1.5", maybe? Something less than 2" anyway; I"d have to go measure) foam since essentially no water pools under there.So the filter foam is not elevated above the floor of the tank? You just put down filter foam, ABG mix, and leaf litter?
