Nylon Filter

fish question plz help?

i have a fluval 2 filter and i ws wondering if i could put normal cotton wool in stead of filter wool can i do that

Normal cotton is a bad idea.

The 'wool' that is used in the filter is actually nylon , so it doesn't break down in the water. You should be able to rinse out the nylon filter pads and re-use them. Don't worry if they are a bit gungy, that's mostly nitrogen cycle bacteria which are the good guys.

You can usually buy filter wool in bulk, or get the nylon padding from other sources (fabric or upholstery suppliers)
