Mixed reviews? I have a media pad in the end game of my fuge. I HATE constantly cleaning it out, otherwise, the water can't get through to my return pump. I've noticed that the media gets clogged mostly with algae growing on and in it, although, occasionally a few pods get caught in there. Do I have to have it, or can I toss it altogether? Is it alright for a few pods and bits of algae from the fuge to go through the pump and back into the main tank? I do use egg crate to keep the chaeto from going over the baffle.
