What do you use in your Aqua clear media basket?
I have an Aqua Clear 70 on my 20g long planted shrimp tank. Right now I have the sponge on the bottom, ceramic rings from aqua clear in the middle and a bag of purigen on top. I also have a fluval sponge over the intake. I also just added a Aqueon 10 with filter floss only.
I have a couple of ques.
How often if ever do you change the rings, or sponge? I rinse them every 2-3 weeks in tank water.
Is the order of the filter media optimal?
Is it worth adding a internal sponge filter to the equation? As I heard and read its filtration, filtration, filtration! I would like for my Red Rili's to breed.
I know I'm already forgetting questions I had, hopefully they'll come to me later.
