I have a Cascade 1000 canister filter and I have been using the ready-to-use nylon bags. The last few times I have picked them up the seals have been coming apart. Does anyone have any experience using the fabric bags that you fill yourself? I don't see the difference but I figured I should ask first.

And on the charcoal, is there a benefit to the pelletized or the chunks? The bags I use now have pelletized.

Thanks for the help!

Well....actually....carbon isn't really necessary unless you are removing meds or tannins from your water. Just something to keep in the back of your mind if you want. ;o)

As for making your own bags...I guess you could just stich up some poly-fil and be good go.
