Afsal,

Pushing water through it is better. But that normally means you have to put it inside bags/in betwene sponges or something similar, which then implies more maintenance IMO as you have to clean it because detritus gets trapped in sponges/bags etc.

Mine are in bags/socks, and in a high flow area, but the water does not get pushed through it so no detritus gets trapped. But this would be less efficient.

I have mine in a small Eheim canister filter in the last compartment of my sump. By the time the water gets there all the crap has normally disappeared out the water.

It is a lot more efficient if water is forced through it.
