Rock Rubble

I currently have a 29 gallon bio cube that has going for about 2 months now. i have been thinking about replacing the bio balls in the back of the system with rock rubble would that be wise or just keep what i have.

I switched my bioballs out after 4 months. It's a darn good idea. The more beneficial bacteria the better and less detritus!

Already cured will be better. Less chance of dieoff causing a spike.
