You can cut the carbon out or stuff the floss behind the cartridge for at least a month to get it started then remove the carbon cartridge. Don't just take out and replace, or you will crash your cycle.

How long has the sponge filter been going? I would just take out one at a time. Take the cloth off it and stuff it in the filter with the floss.

The sponge filter has been in the tank as long as the carbon cartridges

Yeah do one at a time and put the cloth from it in the filter for about a month also. Then take the other out and do the same with your floss. You do not want to do it too fast or it will mini cycle. Your cycle is still too new to do it any faster, so be patient.
