I put a few oyster shells in the filter box, where the manufacturer
intended the filter media to go. I don't use any filtration, I bubble
CO2 into the uptake tube from a DIY pressurized CO2 system, and the
little filter mostly just provides circulation. The dissolved CO2
attacks the oyster shells and *slowly* dissolves them.
