    Default What do you guys put in your media basket? IM Nuvo 20

    I have a IM Nuvo 20. I've been reading around, people say don't use sponge it's a nitrate factory, don't use carbon zoas don't like it, don't use bio media your sand and live rock is enough. So what exactly do people put back there? LoL

    I have a Nuvo 40. I don't use caddy baskets, I use filter socks with a polyfiber pad on top. The only other thing I use is chemi pure, that's it. Keep it simple! If it ain't beoken, don't try and fix it.
