TLDR; What filter media should I use in Tetra EX 800 plus filter?
OK, so I just purchased a Tetra EX 800 plus canister filter. I'm getting a new aquarium next month, but will start seeding this filter with bacteria now on one of my established aquariums.
This filter has 4 compartments for filter media. But there is enough space in them to squeeze in 2-3 more sponges or other filter media.
One compartment came half filled with solid ceramic rings which I think are useless. So I bought porous biomax rings instead and twice the quantity as there was more than enough room for them.
I think I will throw out bio balls and put in more filter foam and fill top compartment fully with filter floss.
So, from bottom up I would fill the compartments like this: biomax, foam, foam, floss.
What would you suggest?
