Hi man geeks. Can I invade your tools of the trade forum with a girl question?
A friend who is tired of fish /ohmy.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":o" border="0" alt="ohmy.gif" /> gave me two magnum filters . They appear to be like a hot mag water polisher, only bigger and floor standing. I currently use Rena's and Marineland enclosed filters for 75gal tanks.
so here's the thought....can these mags be converted to multilevel enclosed filter boxes capable of containing bacteria cultures etc.? How would I go about it?
Or should I bag that idea and just have a couple of Big water polishers?
Would they make good water softeners?
I've never actually seen one of those filters before..
Here's a link for those of you that aren't familiar with magnum filters.

thanks for the link Duncan..yes that's it. It is a real dinosaur, and as you can see, it has either a carbon insert or a fiber one, and does the very simplest removal of debris/flow over charcoal kind of filtration, but it moves alot of water. The LFS guy (who obviously wants to sell me another Rena or Marineland instead) said they are odd shaped and "hard to convert". *sigh* Oh well, *sigh* /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" />
