Did you also purchase ceramic rings? I wouldn't use the carbon that comes with it as it is not needed.

Also, instead of buying the filter floss (which can be very expensive) from Penn Plax, Wal-Mart sells batting that is safe for aquarium usage.

I did not purcase ceramic rings, I will proably them those at a local pet store.

I have approx 14oz of filter floss alredy which is safe for aquariums. I will use that.

The filter comes with material, but i'm sure its not the best stuff.

The filter will come with a sponge, filter floss, and carbon. I purchased an additional sponge for all of our canisters and used ceramic rings in place of carbon.
