Ac 50

I'm cycling my tank and just got a new ac 50. Should I fill the nylon bag with the biomax stuff? Or fill it with my seeded gravel?

Yes, put the biomax in there. I run AC's with a sponge on top, biomax, sponge on the bottom. Occasionally, i'll toss in some polyfil, though I'm becomming less and less of a fan of it.

Carbon is useful for removing meds (after treating) or tannins from driftwood, but not necessary for normal maintenance.

I actually put the biomax in and zip tied what was left of the media bag and filled it with seeded gravel. So now I have both
