how do you set up your canister filter?
 
I was just curious how everyone has their canister filters set up. It is my understanding that floss/sponge are the best mechanisms for capturing and colonizing the BB. I just see in the pet stores all of these other products that just dont seem to me like they would really do much in regards to polishing the water the way floss/sponge would, and also seem to be useless in regards to being a home for BB. I am talking about the bio rings and other media of that nature.

In my pen pax I have 4 spots and I have it like this bottom to top


Bio-sponge
Carbon(to help control some dw still tanning)
Bio-rings
Bio-floss

Normal setup is

Sponge
Rings
An open spot to seed filters for other tanks
Floss


I noticed a huge difference when I added the bio rings they have lots of area and seed really fast it seemed
