DIY Nylon filter bags?

Recommended Posts

These things are kind of on the expensive side. Is there a way to make these? Maybe out of panty hose and I can tie off the ends? Although I one time had used a fabric in my filter and it rotted, so I am kinda weary of fabrics. Maybe produce mesh bags would do the trick if I can find some with small enough mesh?

Well you can use Nylon Panty hose. Make sure they are regular ones. yes they wont last as long as the Aquarium mess bags. Just make sure you change it out like every six months :thumb:

Yeppers. I tie them with elastic bands, as koko says they do get bunged up with gunk but are good for extra coral ...bio media etc if your filters can't home much :)
