How about some good links to a 'proven' and 'reliable' epoxy for plywood aquariums?

I noticed no one responded to a previous request for a good source for glass. Does anyone know where it can be ordered from?

Question Foam filter media?

The search feature isnt working at the moment, and I'm fairly impatient... so I apologize if this has been covered already.

I'm looking to DIY my foam filter elements for a Fluval 305... any online suppliers that make this stuff in the same density as the Fluval standard foam inserts? I'm even thinking of looking around at Home Depot for any material that would work.

Any and all info is greatly appreciated. :-)
