"I'm all about using media beds as filtration for inline raft systems. IMO black lava is the only media to use because of the cost, availability, & surface area. I was interested to hear about the mercury/selenium issue, & will follow…"

"I've found some other people with similar experience, and other say it worked well. So I really don't know... but I will probably try it. When we first filled the hole to make a swimming pool (it took about 5-6000 liters) we couldn't…"

Vlad Jovanovic replied to Stevan Covic's discussion Advice on hybrid setup
"Yes, the 1 to 1 ratio applies to media beds WITHOUT using a sump. You should never stock a system according to the fish tank water volume capacity, but rather to your bio filtration capacity. But truth be told, even that is not entirely correct.…"

"Pozdrav Vlad, Thanks for the answer, you cleared up some issues I had. I didn't realise the 1/1 rule applied only for media beds. As for the fish, I planned on trying 15kg. that would be about 300g of fish per 20l of FT water. However, if I use…"
