Was browsing through old postings on Fishlore and came across the fact that if you have live plants you should not be using carbon filters as it takes away the nutrients from the plants. Oops, I will take out the carbon from my AC filters but then all I am left with is the sponge and bio max media. Also the ammonia filters have not been reccomended is this true even for a newly seeded/cycling tank? Can I just go with a sponge or two and a bio max media in my filters?
