I run an ac30 on my 10 too and I don't use any of the stock media. Purigen and phosgaurd for my chemical media and polyfil from Walmart as filter floss for mechanical.

Purigen and phosgaurd are like the carbon (black bag) but better for sw. Polyfil is pillow stuffing from Walmart that I use instead of the sponge, $9 will get you enough for a year plus and I just throw it out during my weekly water change. The bio pellets are for fw, the rock in your tank will act as your bio filtration in sw.
