    I also want to know if anyone is using Filter Sponges as a way to trap detritus and remove it,

    A lot of All-In-One tanks like the JBJ and the Biocube come with filter sponges.

    I used filter floss in my 14g biocube. It can be effective and removing detritus from the water column if you can keep on top of replacing it. If you lax, it can actually end up being a nitrate source.

    my floss is chaeto in a dedicated remote chaeto tank, suspended solids get trapped there

    I rub GFO, Carbon, and does vinegar/vodka. I also use a skimmer 24/7, but that is considered mechanical filtration and not media. ;) To polish the water I use a vortex diatom filter...hands down the best way I've found to get the tank ultra clear.
