see i didnt go trickle after extensive research because
the gas/exchange would eat up all my co2
i'd diy a trickle if i thought it could be used, in fact
i preferred it and i had all the stuff i needed to make
instead i made a diy canister out of a whole house
filter, i use fluval coarse sponge and shotgun wads and
poly floss.
this is what i mean... it's like 50/50 split and so
there no real reference to rely on for knowledge.
