Does this fit the PSE-1 protein skimmer?

The PFE-1 Cartridge does not fit the PSE-1. The PSE-1 replacement cartridges are scheduled to be available in about 30-90 days. Currently, customers have been using our blank filter pads, http://www.truaqua.com/aquatop-cotton-filter-pad-cfp-xy-1823.html, which can be cut to size, and inserting them in place of the cartridge. If you are encountering high amounts of micro-bubbles, it is advisable to increase the length of the replacement filter pad to avoid water bypass over the top of the current cartridge. If you want to add carbon, it will be necessary to use something like a women’s stocking or mesh bag to place the carbon in the filter compartment. Your flow rate may need to be adjusted to compensate for additional media. Please advise, high carbon content will render your skimmer useless, as carbon will trap the organics that the skimmer is trying to grab. A small amount of carbon should be added to control water odor and discoloration.
