All that stuff goes into the filter compartment of an aquaclear filter. The chemipure elite comes in a mesh bag and the foam block is just that, a foam rectangle that sits on the bottom.

Rock will serve the same purpose as having it in your tank, it can house the beneficial bacteria.

Chemipure elite is about $9 a bag and it's good for up to 6 months.

Yep, you can use filter floss as well as the foam block and the chemipure. The AC70 has a good amount of space for filter media.

YEA!!! Ordered the AC 70 and the two korolia 750 powerheads with 5-8 day shipping two days ago, and it just came!!!

Bad news, the korolias came in some pretty torn up boxes, and one of them wasnt even put together. We put it together bec nothing was broken, but im not sure if it was fone correcty. The propeller isnt centered perfectly, any ideas? Also, how do you turn them on to see if they work?! Lol thanks!!!

The boxes are no big deal - I had the same thing - One was put together and one was not. The only way to test it is to plug it in. If it goes it goes.

If you need water try a sink or bathtub - won't hurt anything.

Also the propeller is just in by a magnent, so they pull out very easily with little effort - try pulling it out and it pops itself back in very smoothly.

Maybe put them down an inch or two and direct them just a tad upwards and facing each other and, say, the front glass.
