What is your advice on a HOB


What is your advice on a HOB filter.  I have it filled with ceramic from my othe tank, sponge and charcoal  filter pad.  Do you think smaller water changes weekly are better then the 25% water change every 2 weeks? I get my water from a local fish store…so I want to be careful.  I have added a small refugium with cheato as well.  The stock pump with the Nuvo 38 seems to be fine.  I keep the water flow closes to the top.  The seahorses are able to track the myisis and hitch with no problem.  I find them hitching at the top closes to the water flow with no problem.  I have place very tall artificial plants in front of the water intake on both sides to prevent them from getting caught in the flow.  That seems to work as well.  I have kept the stock filter of the three pads going as well, phosphate sponge, charcoal sponge and a regular sponge.  Rinsed out with water changes.  Any ideas on this would be helpful.
