    As you intend live plants, I would not use any sort of chemical filtration. "Chemical" filtration refers to filtration that affects the water chemistry in some way, such as carbon (your "coal" I am assuming refers to black activated carbon which is common in many filters), purigen or matrix.

    Most canister filters have three stage filtration, the first being some type of ceramic disks, the second a biological media (the "mech"), and then the fine pads/floss/sponge layer. These provide mechanical filtration, which involves removing particulate matter from the water so it is clear, and biological which deals with ammonia/nitrite.

    Led light chichiros 90 cm

    This light is both good and bad, Its good if you want to go hi tech Dutch style tank with CO2 injection and EI dosing of fertilizers, bad if you do not.
