That actually brings up a question.....why isn't chemical media used very often in piranha tanks? I can understand not needing GFO since most of these tanks are have dim lighting....algae probably isn't an issue. What about carbon? I would think that anything that would clean the water would be of some benefit?

If you're doing everything right, and the water you're putting in your tank doesn't require treatment, you shouldn't need chemical media. I run (2) FX5's on a 120 gallon, Both of them run the stock sponges that came with them and Bio (the above mentioned lava rocks in one, seachem matrix in the other). Crystal clear water and healthy fish.
