Hey everyone.
I am looking for some help on my Boyu TL550. What media would be best for the Internal sump? Has 4 chambers and the skimmer has to go in the 2nd chamber.

Thanks in advance

Hi.
In terms of filtration, there are three stages
1. Mechanical (Skimmer)
2. Biological (Use Chaeto)
3. Chemical (Use carbon)

Good luck bud

There is no need for sponge as there should be enough filtration already, lava rock and bio balls are not necessary if you have live rock. Carbon is generally very good when making water crystal clear and its the best along with chaeto.

So only the skimmer as mechanical filtration?

Hi JanPrrr

The above are merely an examples of the three stages of filtration.
In regards with point number 2, Chaetomorpha and LR are perfect for biological filtration.
Point 3. of Muzwaid's reply, Carbon, Po4 remover etc...
