Not sure if anybody has tried this stuff: "Polyfilter" but it is absolutely amazing! After watching Rachel O'Leary youtube I thought I would give it a go.
I normally run a sponge filter as well as a top filter on my shrimp tanks. my top filter runs wool filter pad, Seachem matrix, filter floss. On one of the tanks I thought I would do a little experiment I cut a small strip of polyfilter around 20mm wide the length of the filter and sat under my spray bars and about an hour later I thought my water is looking pretty good went to bed and woke up this morning and man my water looks absolutely amazing. My tank is so clear and its inhabitants are way more active it looks like my shrimp are floating on air. So this morning I did another test on my small snail breeding set up one of the dirtiest tanks just running a sponge filter I thought I would cut a small square and float it in the water, 2 hours later the tank is clear. It also apparently removes ammonia, heavy metals including copper, harmful organics, all forms of phosphate. I don't know what voodoo and witchcraft they pack into this stuff but it works a treat.

I am using something called Algae Wafer made by someone called Pisces and I think it comes from China but its really great value compared to a lot of the others in the pet shops and my shrimp just love it.
