Can I just use a sponge, more Bio media, and then filterfloss maybe?
O and what to know your guys opinions on what kind of combo works for you too.
Save your money. If you follow a good water change routine, you don't need to use carbon (chemical) medium. The frequent water changes will do a lot more to keep the tank water clean and the chemistry stable than carbon.
I change out half the tank water every week and just use a poly fiber and the biomax bag in my Hagen filters.
Just a thought.
