Media Order, Fluval 406, right or wrong?
So in my 55G established aquarium, I was experiencing a .25 Ammonia level that just would not go away after adding an additional 5 Mbuna Cichlids to the tank. In order to establish more beneficial bacteria to help with the small amount of Ammonia, I changed out 2 of the 4 baskets of filtration media and my new order is as follows:
Coarse sponge for initial filtration
Stage 1 - Black Bio Max Sponge
Stage 2 - Polishing Pad
Stage 3 - Bio Max
Stage 4 - Bio Max
Does this seem like a good setup for the filtration order? Will adding an additional tray of BioMax help with establishing more Beneficial Bacteria which in essence will help with eliminating the Ammonia?
Am I on the right track?
