Hi eheim ehfisubstrate best biological media ever
filter wool for 'polishing' the water
And sponge because of all the different porosity you can get it in and different sizes and you can cut it to size
Shrimps! not a media as such but they do an amazing job of keeping the tank clean
Merry Christmas

I just use the blue filter pad that you cut to size and the ceramic cut tubes. I have bio-wheels, so I don't worry too much about the media.
