Although some commercially available products may be effective (to some
degree), it's hard to imagine them being cost effective compared to gravel
or water from an established tank. If you can get a cup or two of gravel
from an established tank to use as filter media in your new tank you'll be
far ahead.

YMMV, IMO, etc.
