Hello there i am about to start up a marine tank it is the river reef 94 with live sand and 20kg of live rock !
i was wondering what filter media as i have bought this tank off a friend i have heard about using some live rock rubble and some filter floss would that be enough or would i need a filter sponge ?

With 20 kgs (~44lbs) of live rock, I don't think you would need any thing else
Just take things slow, allow your tank to cycle, and stock slowly.
Adding even more live rock (rubble) into a filter will only add to your maintenance and have a minimal impact on your water qualityIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
