Pond Matrix or Floss

I have a Penguin 350 with the bio wheels. I have floss in it right now but i was wondering if i would benefit better from chucking the floss and loading the thing up with Pond MAtrix. I have some floss in the XP3 already and dont want to do to much floss.

I'm not famaliar with that stuff, but just by going on Seachems site and looking and the MSDS, it says it's natural stone. I would think you would get the same results as using live rock rubble in the filter.

I agree with ccCapt.

I would opt for the LR rubble.

I agree as well, it looks like LR or base rock rubble would be way more porous (depending on the rock you buy).
