    What can I use for media for my freshwater sump? Should I use bio balls?

    Yeah Bio Balls or Stars,..some use Lava Rock,..i would also
    use a course pad before the bio and a fine pad after,..i've
    never been a fan of using carbon or chips except to remove
    meds,..but thats up to you. I personnally think odor is from
    either overpopulated or poorly maintained tanks.

    Also if you have a dollar store up your way go bet a bunch of plastic pot scrubber. They work just like bio-balls, but cheaper.
