I was wondering what people used in their media containers? I put activated carbon into mine. Does it restrict water flow by putting media in there? and was putting carbon into my containers a good choice?

Why do you not use carbon?

I have some carbon around but it is only if I need to remove meds from a tank. I have never had a reason to use carbon so I dont. I think it is kind of a crutch for some problems....instead of getting to the root of the problem, people use carbon to mask it.

So you just use bio-media, micron filters etc in your canisters?

Same here. I fill the baskets on my Emp 400 with ceramic beads for biofiltration.

How often do you change the beads?
