Polishing pads should be the last depending on direction of flow. This is top on most canisters.

Yes on the Fluval water enters the bottom tray first and then travels up the media baskets, so to keep the polishing pads as clean as and long as possible put em in the top/last basket.

Hey Heavy, put some filter floss in the tray with the polishing pad. Keep the pad on top of the floss and then add a bag of Purigen on top of the p.pad-->crystal clear water....

OK SO I've had it running or like 3 hours with the Floss and the polishing pads. Didn't find the PURIGEN in my local pet store out of stock. But and this is the results.

I can only imagine what it will look like when I get the purigen in there.

O_o' . MIND BLOWN!!! Lol
