hi
i've got cerramic noodles in my external filter,
they seem to do the job just fine.
:)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

i dont see how bioballs can hold the bacteria.. i mean ceramic is porous so it should hold it better

The bioballs do not "hold the bacteria".
A bioball contains many interior and exterior surfaces.
The digestion bacteria grows on these surfaces.

3) I have bioballs, ceramic cylinders, ceramic toroids and sintered glass in my biological filtration process.
