Filter media help/recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hi all, looking for recommendations on what other media to put in my AIO back filter chamber(s).
Right now its just filter floss in chamber one, and seachem matrix in chamber 2. I have extra amounts of matrix (bio media) to compensate the “small” amount of rock i have in display. 
i have lots of space left and wondering what to fill it up with. Going to try no skimmer/refugium. Just media, as its only 25 gal and low bioload. 

So far im thinking another biomedia (whichever you guys recommend) and purigen and phosguard. 
Unless im recommended otherwise or these are a bad idea for whatever reason.
Thanks!!

I wouldn't run chemical media unless you have to. Test your nutrients first before putting that stuff in, you don't want to end up with dinos from bottoming out your nutrients

Yep.

 

Don't use things to fix a problem you don't have. Maybe toss an airstone in there.  Just because there's space doesn't mean you have to fill it.

I only used

 

Filter floss and carbon.

 

I bagged my own carbon so i used small quantities to reduce chemical warfare between corals. 2 tablespoons for 25g changed every 2 weeks.

 

Nothing else besides a pod condo
