So is this the source to keeping your water crystal clean, it's gonna catch the floating particles in my water so I can get a crystal look?

It's just polyester fill for pillows and such for sewing. It is inert fluff that will catch virtually all particulates in your water, giving it a bright and clear look.

 

Nothing to it...just cheap poly.

I use a sock, carbon, and Purigen. On fresh carbon and Purigen, it looks like there's no water in there . . . looks like the fish are floating on air.

I spent about $20 on a year's worth of 'pond and aquarium filter floss', the blue and white bonded stuff, which was about 1.5 or 2in thick. I'm considering going with the polyester fill, but this is working really well and is rigid enough to be picked up, like filter sponge.

 

I should probably add: I calculated the area and assumed I'd be switching out the filter floss every morning, so there's that.
