Additional filter materials can significantly improve the filter performance in an aquarium.

Here are some common materials and their effects:

1. Activated carbon : Activated carbon is used to adsorb contaminants, odors and chemical residues from water. It helps keep the water clear and odor-free.

2. Ceramic Rings : Ceramic rings provide a large surface area for beneficial bacterial colonies that break down ammonia and nitrite. They promote biological filtration and help improve water quality.

3. Bio-Balls : Bio-Balls are small plastic balls with a porous structure. They provide a surface for the establishment of bacterial colonies and promote effective biological filtration.

4. Zeolite : Zeolite is a natural mineral that binds and removes ammonia. It helps reduce ammonia levels in the water and promotes a healthy environment for the fish. (Zeolite is available here!)

5. Siporax : Siporax is a special filter medium with a porous structure. It provides a large surface area for beneficial bacteria that break down organic waste. Siporax improves biological filtration and helps stabilize water parameters.

These additional filter materials can be used depending on the individual needs of the aquarium. It is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and clean or replace materials regularly to maintain optimal filter performance. Thorough research and advice can help select the right filter media and ensure it works effectively with the HMF to achieve optimal water quality.
