, aggressive skimming and powerheads for movement are really all you need. However, like MT, I like the option of mechanical filtration for "water polishing". I have a sump filled with LR
rubble but I also use PURA filtration pads on occassion. Mainly after water changes or moving things around in the tank to help clear it. Some options are using a HOB
filter (minus any bio-media they come with) or keeping a canister on hand for the sole purpose of occassional mechanical filtration. This type of filtration should be considered secondary as the LR
ARE the best things you can do for you tank.
