They are difficult to find. I know that none of my local stores carry them anymore. I am not sure if they are even still produced. A lot of people (myself included) use sponge filters. If you are looking for something with activated carbon I know that there are these cartridges that are basically elaborate airstones that serve the same purpose. I cannot remember which company produces (penn plax maybe??) them but I have seen them at walmart.

Oregon is Really hard to find anything for newts. I live in Medford and I have to cross to CA to get a lot of my supplies. Go to this website and it'll give you a better idea on what Newts and Salamanders are around here: www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/pdf/amphibians.pdf

How soon do you need them? I have a couple I could give you for shipping price. I prefer sponge filters but have some new plastic old style corner box filters sitting around. I don't know how far Bowie is from Havre De Grace, Md. I'll be at the show their on April 12. shoot me an email

Pet stores don't like to sell box filters because they are so cheap, and they don't trap you into buying expensive replacement cartridges... that's my theory.

If anyone else is looking and Michael runs out... thatpetplace has them:

Just to ad to Jen's post here is another site http://www.jehmco.com/ I have never ordered anything from this company but they have a nice selection of practical aquarium keeping supplies.

Is there a certain rule for what size you get?
