I've been looking up different filter media that would help me mantain good water quality and help sort out a problem I've been having lately with ammonia levels in my tropical tank. I read some reviews that spoke highly of lava filter media. It's supposed to keep water cristal clear and remove smells. It may as well be a decent substitute for carbon ( for regular use, not after medicating) So I bought these two:

Have you guys tried them? Any impressions to share?

I haven't, but I'd be interested in knowing if the filterlav works. It sounds pretty cool!

I can't say I've ever bothered with chemical filtration. Do you know what's been causing the ammonia?

It says on the box it provides biological and mechanical filtration. The ammoex I still haven't read the instructions of but folks on the tropical forum say it almost does miracles. The ammonia is usually 0,5 when I check before WC. I think I'm a bit overstocked and will upgrate after New year's. Till then I'm doing more frequent water changes and will see how the ammoex works. Probably will add another filter.

I'll let you know! So far it has been in the filter for less than a day and can't say if it does the job or not.
