    Hi all,

    I have removed the standard filtration media that came with the boyu tl450. I am thinking of using carbon, purigen and phogaurd. What would be the best placement for these media, which chambers?
    Also, do i just put it in a filter bag and drop it in? Will there be enough flow?

    Thanx in advance.

    Welcome to MASA @Eben.

    I am running purigen,phosgaurd combination in my tl550. I have them in the first chamber in a diy media rack build out of egg crating. But you dont need it.had it in the rear chambers without media rack for a couple of years and worked great. I will put it in the 1st,2nd or 3rd chambers as you have the most flow in those chambers. I removed the black sponge as it restricted the flow and was a mission to clean.replaced it with filter floss that I change twice a week.That will also stop your filter bags to collect detritus. Always good to rinse the filter bags in tank water when you do a water change to get rid of detritus,also mixes up the filter media.
