All that stuff goes into the filter compartment of an aquaclear filter. The chemipure elite comes in a mesh bag and the foam block is just that, a foam rectangle that sits on the bottom.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Rock will serve the same purpose as having it in your tank, it can house the beneficial bacteria.

Chemipure elite is about $9 a bag and it's good for up to 6 months.

Yep, you can use filter floss as well as the foam block and the chemipure. The AC70 has a good amount of space for filter media.
