Anyone use this?

It says 100% polyester but doesn't say anything about being flame retardant.  It also says made from recycled materials.  It is from Walmart.   Thanks

Plenty of reefers use it and have zero issues. Being frugal myself, I have some on hand just in case I run out of the pink filter floss, but at this time the Pink stuff is working out great.

Yep, I use that same bag when I know I'm going to go through a lot of floss (dino outbreak, cyano outbreak, after heavy turkey baster-ing). I put some on top of my more expensive/better inTank floss as kind of a pre-filter floss filter.  It does tend to leave a lot of loose fibers around the tank and stuck on powerheads, which can be solved by putting it in a bag first, but usually I skip the bag since I know I'm going to remove it in a few hours anyways.

I’ve used it in my Biocube for about two years. No issues that I have ever noted.

I don't know if I want to use it if it leaves loose fibers.  Anyone else have this problem?

I have some running in my jbj cubey right now and snapped a pic so you can see what I mean. It's usually pretty long fibers that are easy to pick back out.

Only once did I get some wrap around the impeller, but it didn't seem to mess anything up, I just noticed it while doing routine maintenance.

I made a floss fibre guard out of craft mesh. Every time I replace the floss I give the guard a shake to get the loose fibres out pop it back in, add floss done.

 

Not really needed as far as I can tell, but makes me feel better.

That right there might just work!
