Bio Filter media for Nuvo 16 Suggestions Please


My challenge now is to determine what bio media I intend to place in the middle chamber. Many options such as
Eheim's SUBSTRAT Pro Biological Filtration Media,1L which I would use along with
Eheim's EHFILAV Freshwater Biological Filtration Media, 1L

or

Seachem Laboratories Matrix - 2 Liter with
Seachem Purigen™ Filter Media and
Innovative Marine MiniMax All-In-One Media Reactor loaded with Seachem Laboratories Matrix Carbon

I am leaning to the second combo the Seachem with reactor. Of course I could use the reactor in setup one too.

or some type of Bio Balls

any suggestions


Bob

I suggest going with what's cheapest.

Though, you can't go wrong with Seachem Matrix. It's one of my favorites.

Carbon isn't necessary in a planted tank unless you need to remove medication.

I just use sponges. Unless you are overstocked, it provides plenty of area for bacteria to grow. I've never found the need for anything else.
