I also think some Bacter products out there help polish water and make it cleaner and cleaner, surge of good bacteria is a good thing.

I used this product when starting my tank and still have a lot left if it will help.

Keep in mind, Matt, that quilt batting and filter floss are just different descriptions/names for one and the same thing.

Fabric stores sell it as 'polyester quilt batting', and LFS's sell it as 'filter floss', except for about 3 X the price of quilt batting.
If you buy it at a fabric store, make darn sure it is completely untreated - no additive compounds, no disinfectants, no fire retardants !
