DIY Filter foam

Okay, I getting into this sharing stuff.
I have just found a pile of foam heading for the bins at work. I have used it in the past and its is excellent as a medium to fine mechanical filter. I use it in front of floss to catch the bottles and house bricks before the water reaches the floss. It can also go around filter inlets to stop fry committing suicide. The sheets are a bit under A3 size and about 5mm thick and there are probably 50 sheets.
Anybody interested? If so I will go grab a wadge (local term for as much as I can carry)
Regards, Steptoe & Son's No. 1 Minion.

I would give a sheet or two of it a home @Andy the minion   ;)

I can offer malaysian trumpet snails or some Hygrophila Polysperma as a trade or I will reimburse postage if you prefer.

@Paddyc
An exchange of plant would be very welcome, I already have 20,000 MTS :)
I'll IM you to find out where the dead letter drop is so the deal can go down. There is always the supermarket frozen shrimp aisle that @Littlefish uses for her nefarious deals.

Supermarket exchanges - anonymous and handy for doing a quick shop at the same time.

That could be a problem since paddy lives in Scotland...

I've been thinking about making a hamburg filter since my tank is overstocked and for future tanks so a sheet would be great thanks @Andy the minion :-)
