    Anyone got a good online source for Rena filter media?

    It's mainly the foams that I need as I'll use Fluval or Eheim etc for the bio stage.

    Cheers

    I'm not familiar with the Rena foams, but for my Fluval when I used it and instead of the filter pads for my Ehiem I simply buy a huge sheet of pond filter foam in whatever grade and then cut the right sized pieces out. Far, far cheaper IME and you can use coarse medium or fine foam.

    Good idea... I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work for the Rena too. I'll do some research to see what's available. Cheers.

    Been using pond filter foam in my filters for the past 10+ years with no problems. Local garden center sell packs with all 3 grades for a fiver. Lasts me a year for 2 teratec 1200's, changing every couple of months.
