Thing is with the stock filter, they are pads. One's a foam sponge and the other is a cotton/carbon combination. They won't fit into the U1 and the other filter currently running before the U1 comes in has ceramic bio media in it. I was thinking of dumping those biomedias (been 4 days now) cut a piece of the cotto & remove the carbon and put it on the intake holes of the U1, will that avoid the mini cycle? Or can I just put the oniomedia (ceramics) and avoid a mini cycle as my bioload is so small (2shrimps 1 betta) I want to get rid of the filter cube/light of the chi to install my new fugeray properly
