      yes i would only use it after an RDF. I wouldn't want water hitting the *clogged rio* (and by clogged i mean clogged via bio buildup) with no where to go and backing up or going over the side and missing all 4 layers.

      This would be a problem if it were to happen, but I doubt it would unless it was getting dirty water. We are trying to create a thin layer of bacteria on the media so we are spreading the water out over a greater surface at the top to keep those colonies thin. It is the same principle I used with Cermedia and it worked very well. If you try to make the media do too much work, then you will get a thick bacteria colony which is not good.

      Here is a video I shot a while ago and forgot to make public...


      This is the same G-Shower as at the beginning of this thread but it was modified to work with the Rio Shower Media and is flowing around 6300 GPH.

      I am in the process of working out my first stocking order of the Rio Media and hopefully I have a bunch of this stuff at my warehouse in a week or two.

      Zac I've been using a piece of the Rio media and it seems pretty good. The water is still flowing nicely through the media. I'll try to post a video of how much water the media retains also.
