Depends on which one you get and if I remember correctly it says to only lightly rince.

The tank size is 30g.

The picture you see is top: mechanical sponge
Middle: carbon sponge
Bottom: phosphate sponge.

Will it be ok to remove the carbon and put the bag of chemi pure elite in once I have rinsed it.

Does anyone know how big the bags are?

Yes you replace the carbon with it. The 1/2 is mabey 3x3x1 the whole one is about 3x6x1 if its layed out flat . Like I mentioned earlier I belive the instructions say to only rince slightly. I use it in my cichlid tank and like it. But it gets expensive. And the half only does if I remember up to 20 or 25gallons. Mabey 30.

The small one will be fine. 6.5 oz or something like that. It will be enough they say a certain size but that's for a maxed out tank. In this hobby less is better you can always add more if needed.i rinse mine heavy I don't want the dust of the gfo in my system.

Should I put the chemi pure elite in for the carbon sponge or phosphate sponge?

i would do in order the flow goes like this the coarser sponge the finer sponge then the chemipure elite but you can try different variations to see what works best for you

Yeah I've got to have my chemical sponge first because that traps waste, un eaten food etc.

Then I have to choose to have the chemi pure elite then the phosphate sponge. Or other way round.

Which do you think will be best?
