Running Carbon

Just picked up Marineland premium activated carbon. I plan on throwing some in a media bag but it doesnt really give instructions. What steps does everyone typically take in adding carbon. Rinse? Thanks in advance.

Yes you have to rinse it first. A couple questions tho, how big is your tank, and what kind of filter do you have?
