    Hi guys. Does anyone know what material is used for a filtration compartment? The part that separates the main tank from the filtration compartment in tanks without a sump like the tl550.

    :thumbup: tx in advance

    I've never seen a tank with it in person so haven't seen the type of material. @Nemos Janitor:whistling::):biggrin:

    It could be a few types of material. Polycarbonate, acrylic or glass comes to mind. ABS ?
