So i am kind have some question on the filtration method for housing the bacteria on

Marine pure block
ceramic rings
bio balls
live rock
or any suggestion for increase the probiotic performance to reduce or maintain po4 and no3 @ stable rate.

another question for the phosphate minus and carbon, can i pack it in a filter bag in an ios tank to filter the po4 and no3.

just to mention that the 2nd tank still in planning but the build i currently planning is

Hello,
With a mixed reef, depending on how heavy with bio-load you could go with either AF Reef Salt, or Probiotic Reef Salt. These salts mix to close to NSW values, this is a plus for those who try and maintain those values. If you choose the probiotic route, the system is best utilized with Probiotic Reef Salt as the staple, complimented with Pro Bio S(Bac source) and NP Pro(carbon source). This is what helps to maintain ULNS. Many users implement siporax, matrix, or blocks to create a home for bacteria to populate, this helps the system to efficiently process N&P. Also in the lineup you have the corals supplements to feed and provide vitamins and essentials in coral building. There is the mineral and trace mineral aspects, covered with use of Component 123. Check out the downloadable user guide, query on the Probiotic Method for demanding SPS. This will give you the lineup. Here is a link to learn about products, after all, this is your reef, and the more you know the better. If you get stuck or have questions, please do not hesitate ;) Cheers http://aquaforest.eu/en/wszystkie-produkty/

I have a doubt that is it normal to dose aquaforest products if we are doing aquaforest carbon filteration in the sump? Pl advise.
