View Full Version : Free Wet/Dry

i was given a wet/dry filter, it has a main pump, and a small maxi-jet, which i assume is for the protein skimmer it came with. i need an overflow, and some bio balls.

Im not sure but the main pump is what pump back into tank right? i guess im going to buy some stuff new for it.

please share advise or experiences with wet/dry filters. or any cool DIY"S for them

Skip the bio balls go to the LFS get a 50 micron filter bag. Have your drain into the bag.
The return pump should "turn" your water 10x the tank size per hour. I.E. 290gph for 29 gal tank, could be more but put a ball valve in the return line to thrittle it down if needed.
