Hello everyone.
Does anybody know where to purchase filter material for the JBJ 3 gal
Pico tank filter in the DFW area?
Thanks,

HI Vicky, yes it is the one in the Garden Ridge shopping center aka old Plano square mall.
north east corner of spring creek and ave K. how have you been? do you still have your frog shop?
you might remember but it's been along time since you have seen me. I bought a few power heads from you I was the (at the time) little brown hair boy with my mom. now I'm a lot older and a lot taller.

Cindy,

The white and blue bi-modal air filter material works really well in those small filters and is a lot more economical. Truth be told, you probably don't even need filter media for your little tank with just plants and shrimp in there.


Cheers,
Phil

Hi Phil!
I was looking at getting one of those blue/white filter pads and
cutting it to fit, but I was wondering about the charcoal pillow.
The water in the tank is a little cloudy even with partial water changes.
I think I might have too many shrimp in there.

pantyhose, go to a shoe store and act like you are trying on some shoes .. free pantyhose just don't put them over your face in the store

To help pull out the cloudiness, try using the product Clearity made by Seachem. That will bond the particles in the water together so the filter will pick them up.
