yeah, filtration is seriously overcomplicated these days.
you dont need ammonia media because dealing with this is the whole point of biofiltration. i havent used carbon in 15 years. i dont think phosphate removal makes sense in a planted tank.
to b honest i have seen no difference in filtration between using all these fancy medias that come with new filters and when i use nothing but foam and sponge - all that matters is that the filter is filled with porous media.
