    Im guessing this is the right forum for this??? I received my intank media basket for my biocube29. I love the product and design, the only problem was my water flow part was broken, solved it with super glue and an email to intank. Does anyone else have this product and what do they have in it? i have filter floss, seachem purigen, and clear pro fx. outside of the chamber 2 i have live rock ruble.

    Sounds about right.

    I used foam in the top, Chemipure elite (your using clear pro fx which is basically the same thing) and Purigen.

    I do not see the need to use LR rubble. If you have adequate LR in your display, rubble is just redundant to me and a detritus trap in that location.

    Yeah the JBJ has the cambers. I put the Media Basket right under the over flow in center compartment. Problems come to where to put the skimmer if your using one and what type of skimmer it is.
