To all fluval canister filter users?

To all fluval canister filter users. After hearing so much good reviews about it, I finally got a Fluval 304. I have a 46g with a whisper 60 on it right now. So, I was just curious what do Fluval owner here use for their media & configuration method. I know my filtration might sounds way overkill but eventually I known I will be getting more tanks. I am thinking of using Filter Floss(mechanical) on the Low tray, Carbon(Chemical) in the Med tray & BioMax(Biological) on the Top tray.

Appreciate if anyone can share their experience & advice with the fluval canister filter.

I've got the 404 and use biomax on top, followed by filter floss, then carbon and zeolite, then those octagon shaped ceramic rocks for mechanical & biological filtration. Works for my 65 gal tank quite nicely.
