Do you have plants? And what media do you use and which baskets! Thanks

I have 6 Rena 3's and 2 Rena 4's I really like them very dependable, and very easy to service. With 3-4 media baskets the choices are unlimited. I believe Petsolutions has them on sale right now for $113, not a bad price.

I just have stars in one basket, sponges in one and sponges and stars in the 3rd one. I am very happy and will never try anything else other then these rena. Plus I've had mine for years and I'm not talking like 3-4 I'm talking a long time and have never had an issue

I have blood parrots, they don't approve of my choice of live plants.

I have the black thick sponges in the bottom basket, the old biowheel from the tank I upgraded to the 75 along with the biostars and ceramic biomedia in the second basket and a variety of white floss sponges in the third basket.
