Hi,
So my girlfriend bought an aqua one 120l tank, (she has done fishkeeping for a while now).
We would just like to know what order and what filter media to use in the sump. At the moment it goes through a filter sock, into the second compartment where the heater is and then into the third where it gets pumped back up.

I was thinking (through research), it will go through the sock, into the biofilter such as Fluval BIOMAX Media and then into the last compartment where some sort of carbon is housed along with the pump and heater.

Please let us know:
1. type of filter media to use (brands available in australia)
and; 2. how to order the media in compartment 1, 2 and 3

The order you listed is exactly how all of my filters are. I’m not familiar with what you can get in Australia, so hopefully someone can help you out. If you can get Seachem Matrix or pumice for bio media that would be the best. As far as mechanical filtration, if you can get Seachem Purigen instead of carbon that’d be best.
