I'm not sure how to pack my filter. Should the contents be loose, fit (fill up most of the space), or be tightly packed. My contents include ceramic rings and a thick, dense filter floss. The problem is that if I pack it loose, it will allow the poop to get stuck in the larger surface of the filter floss, but I would have to reduce the amount of ceramic rings I have in. But if I pack it fit or tight, it would mean the poop/food would get suck on the side right next to the pump. I've included photos to illustrate. The floss in the photo below is one whole piece, It's not folded or anything. And below I used the arrows to demonstrate how the muck is getting trapped. Since I have it fit, the red arrow, , the muck and dirt is getting trapped on the side which is portrayed by the blue and grey lines after the red arrow. Or would it be better to leave it a bit loose so the muck gets stuck on the larger surface arrow and end where the blue arrow is? But doing this would mean I would have to reduce the amount of ceramic rings in. Is it necessary to put in that much? Or should I use thinner pieces of filter floss next time?
