Okay so I got a filter included with my kit for my 10g tank, but I don't like it too much. I added a 2nd sponge filter a couple of weeks ago. I'm wondering when will it be okay for me to remove my first filter. My tank is cycled now or really close to it. Thanks!

Just put the cycled media from your old filter into your new filter.
Or, wait a month or a little bit more before removing the old filter.

What colour are the rocks?
If they are black that is charcoal.

What brand filter came with your kit?

So my internal filter has these packets inside, that look like mesh covering rocks or something, is that the cycled media?
It is charcoal, do you have any other bag with something like a sponge or filter floss? There should be some bacteria in the charcoal, try sticking it to the sponge filter if that is the only thing you have.

I have the Grreat Choice Aquarium kit from PetSmart. It's the one that is included I guess.
