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

Bottom line would be budget.

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.
