anyone have any ideas on this ? ... #1
hey guys

i stopped using my Under gravel filter a few months ago, and and i am looking to get a "lid" for the holes where the two pipes that returned the water to the surface went.

anyone have any ideas how i can block them off?

thanks

Any chance of a photo of the offending holes? I can't quite picture what it looks like.

A homebrew shop should sell corks that would fit nicely

I take it that there is no chance of removing the filter? It's just that without it "on" it may end up anaerobic underneath it which isn't a good thing
You may be better off leaving it on and suplimenting it with whatever your new filter is.

Won't it come out completely or would that make too much of a mess?

You should be ok either just corking it or filling it with gravel.
