oh- and i almost forgot. this obviously being my first canister, i'm not sure what media to keep in it. right now it has (top to bottom)1 filter floss pad, ceramic rings, BIO-filter balls(plastic), 3 carbon bags, 2 filter foam pads.
i've heard people mention removing carbon after a certain amount of time on a newly extablished tank?
