    PO4 remover in canister filter

    I baught a sock to place the phosphate sponge in but when I read the instructions, it mentions to make sure water flows through and not around. The canister I want to use is circular (eheim) and the sock is...well...sock shaped. Most of the water would flow around and not through. Is there a circular "sock" that would fit in the canister?

    Thanks,

    John

    It will work just fine.
