    I'm still new to this and is probably a dumb question but what is the media I keep seeing on this forum. People talk about it but I still haven't figured it out. Thanks for any help

    Media is the stuff inside your filter - floss, ceramic rings, sponges etc

    Most filters come with the media already in it especially if it's a cartridge type, but worth a check just in case

    The filter cartridge is your mechanical and chemical filter, the bio wheel is your biological filter where the beneficial bacteria (BB) grows. No question is dumb. There is a lot to learn so ask away.
