FX5 media combination

I just got an fx5 on Craigslist and it has media in it already but IM just wondering what you guys have in yours. Really, you don't have to have an fx5 but IM just wondering what kind of media combinations you use you use in your canister filters

from top to bottom:

Fluval prefilter

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.
