Hi All

Think depend on budget oso,
mr aqua cr is most popular I guess,due to budget constraint I bought ANS mini bacteria house for my ohf,$18 per pack

I guess many media are suitable. I am using maninly Biohome and Seachem Matrix.

Bottom line would be budget.

Can try pumice stone from plant nursery. It is similar to matrix.

Pumice will cause PH down rite?

Prefer something to have effectiveness of Biohome. Am considering pond Matrix oso since we can have larger pcs in a media box

Good question. I don't know. If is like matrix, should be neutral. I saw is suitable for alkaline plants. Maybe will go up.

I left out this. Since is an ohf and not sump, space is a concern. Need to get those medias with larger surface area as dont have the luxury of space. Can try marine pure and max spec. Biohome is good. Matrix get the small one as the surface area is more than the larger pond matrix.

Matrix. Cos they dun seem to degrade.
