Can use more than 2 years for biohome. It also depends is in which kind of filter. How much is maxspect?

thanks! I'm using it in my canister filer.
have used for more than 2 years already i think.

tank water does not turn reddish, but inside my canister lots of powder .
also doesn't seem to finish when i rinse there is always dust.

I've had this happen before and i threw away the old bio home, and have not bought new one anymore because of this. really liked bio home plus before it started crumbling.

Time to change den. Mayb u can try Nano tech biosphere, so call will not crumple. Cheaper also. But not sure if can fit how much in your tray, But due to the super big surface area, 10ball is so acall enough for 50Gallan tank. Put more the merrier, i gg to put 4KG to my OHF lol.
