Ok thanks. I'm sure the LFS has them. Now I have to empty the canister and purge it before I do this right?

Ok thanks. I may do just do that. Pre filter? Something fluval carries?

EDIT:
Ok I see it now. Looks like bio media. That's what I'll do. Pre filter, carbon polishing pads and bio media again with polishing pads.

Yeah it's up and running. Just don't have it set up like you that's all.

Oh and by purge I mean doesn't it say to purge it or let the water out of the canister before removing basket. Also did I read the book correctly, you can do your water changes through the canister and not use the python? That's why they give you the extra valve.

I'm gonna call the company again but I swear that's what I read.

I actually just use the original output hose but mine is close enough to a window. But it takes maybe 45 minutes to do a 50% pwc on my 150 gal and that's refilled and everything.

Maybe I'll just stick with the python. I have to go to the bathroom sink and a 50% on my 75 takes no more then 20 minutes. That's refill and all... Not close to a window.

Sounds like you have a system down. I'd at least try it once. Lol
