im not sure what biomax is. but is the emp. filter has a media basket like the penguin filters you can get some of that poly fill stuff, it looks like pillow stuffing, but made for aquarium filters.or you could add a sponge filter or even bioballs.mbraun15 said:what is other important media this is for my emperor 400 filter. MAD told me to get biomax i will be buying that soon enough
an established tank should never have ammonia anyway.I think it may have ammo-chips with the carbon, but I don't think you really need it.ezlife said:I am using the diamond blend right now. I change it roughly once a month when i change the other filters, etc.
What sold me on the product was on the label it said it can control "ammonia spikes". I figure what the hell, give it a try, i already have enough carbon from the filters so add a little blend. My levels are always at zero so something must be right.
I use 3 regular filters and 1 media basket with diamond blend.
