There's no reason not to use them. Just don't use the black carbon-impregnated one if it came with it.

While were on the Ecco, how good are they compared to their big counter-parts? I mean with the flow and filtiration? And would it be good to use an Eheim 2250(rated for 250g) on a 75g? It's the same price as the 2028...but with more media and a higher flow, so possibly a better deal?
