OK, so I have an AquaClear 150 on my 20 long, and an XP2 on my 29 gallon. In both filters all I have is sponges and bio stars (even in the AC 150). They seem to be doing really well, I was just wondering what other people used in their filters. I know that most do not like carbon on planted tanks, but what about the other filter media that removes ammonia.
The reason I ask is because I think I need to find a finner sponge for my 150, because particles are still making it through. I also have a concern that I should be using something else as well, even though everything is going well.
