Egg grate media basket vs acrylic?


Recommended Posts

Can someone explain why an enclosed acrylic media basket works better than an open design using egg crate in a Biocube 29? I've tried to read as much as possible on this but I just can't quite understand how a somewhat enclosed acrylic basket suspended in water is any better than an open basket in the same space. I understand that if fully enclosed, water will be forced through whatever media you place in the tray/rack, but it would seem as though you would almost need to have some type of hose on each end to fully achieve this. All of the water in chamber 2 is going into chamber 3, so having an enclosed design with water up to the same level as the enclosed media basket in the same chamber doesn't make sense to me.
