What type of media would you recommend putting in a Fluval 306 for a medium planted tank?

From quick research I've seen:

Top: Purigen and Filter Floss
Middle: Bio Max
Bottom: Bio Foam

Or just swapping the carbon for purigen straight up and keeping everything else as is.

Anyone have any thoughts on this or know what works?

Thanks

Thanks - I currently am using the media that came with the Fluval 306 - will be changing it during my next maintenance. The water is a bit cloudy, could it be because I'm using eco complete? Any recommendations to clear the water up while still providing good filtration for fish and plants?

Thanks

You mentioned the water is cloudy...did you rinse the biomax with clean water before you added them to the filter?

How long has your tank been running? The cloudiness you see might be a sign that it's cycling.
I did rinse everything in clean water before setting up. Tank hasn't been set up for long.. just about 2 days?
