Eheim media is very much overpriced IMO. For 2L of their Ehfisubstratpro media, I was able to by 33lb bag of Alfagrog and have change left. (It's sold as large porous rocks meant for Koi ponds.)
I crushed a load of it up and put it in several filters I have and it's doing the same job absolutely fine. You can use any of the media with another filter. There are plenty of other good (and cheaper) alternatives for filter media. Have you tried pot scrubbers?
In my EX1200 (the same as the C-360) I ditched the bioballs and replaced with alfagrog.
