So, I went out today and bought a big polyfiber filter pad to baffle my filter. =] I'm planning on using it like a "sponge baffle" that I saw here earlier, because I'm afraid that the sharp edges of the bottle may harm my fish. Also, I think I'm going to cut a small circle of the polyfiber filter pad and put it up the "intake" part of the filter, in case the pull there is too strong. What do you all think? Should this help, or will it impede the filter's capabilities? And do I need to put the pads in dechlorinated tap water first? Or should I just go ahead and put them in the filter? Thanks!
