    No don't put it back. Sorry tangster. That will be nitrates waiting to happen. Those wheels just throw salt everywhere anyway. The fluvals are nice. I have a fluval 204 and love it. Its great. You can put your sponge, chemipure, lr if you want in there.

    Stop going to that store. They are giving you horrible advice! Have you tested your water source? Are you using RO/DI filtered water for your water changes?
