Yes but you do not have to use it, In most cases there is no reason to run carbon.

Agreed, save it for when you need to clean up meds from the tank. I'd suggest using poly-fil where the carbon would go.

Okay, I think I'll go with the ac or the fluval (they are basically the same thing) Thanks for all your help!

I heard you can buy poly fill at fabric stores, is it called poly fill or is there a different name for it there?

Yep, that's the name, poly-fil. I use "Fairfield" brand and know it's safe. Just make sure that's there's no fire retardants, mildew reducers, etc.
