Is it okay for me to layer the sponge block first, then the two small sacks of BioMax pellets on top of the sponge, in my AquaClear 110's media basket? Normally, I'll run two bags of Seachem Purigen on top of the sponge, as well, before the sacks of BioMax, but I did not purchase any yet...Is this layering procedure correct?
Oh, also -- since I recently set up a new 60 gallon for my fancy goldfish, and this tank is very HIGH in terms of its volume distribution, the intake stem on the 110 is kind of short under the surface of the water, whereas I was able to attach an extension tube to the other HOB
I'm running on the tank, an Aqueon QuietFlow 55, so that reaches in deeper to the bottom near the substrate...is it okay that my AquaClear's intake tube is kind of on the short side under the water? I didn't have an extension tube for it...
Does this matter?
