Looking for recommendations for trickle tower media, been running alfagrog in mine but looking for something better, was thinking crystal bio or maybe bac bio balls?
Many thanks

Richard ,

Just my opinions, I am no expert.

Think you are right to ditch the grotty alfagrog.

Crystal bio is very good as is the more expensive BHM or siporax .

I have seen plastic media(balls ,curlers, flocor et al) used in towers/showers) non of which would be for me.

A decent cheaper media is pumice stone.

Other forum members might share different opinions.

I have a CL3 just working as a trickle tower and I have K1 in it and it seems ok.
