    Hallo knowledgeable guys!

    I was just wondering which way around I should mod the filter chambers at the back of the Fluval Evo 13.5

    After researching things I'm planning on putting (filter floss - granulated activated carbon - temp phosguard) in one chamber and then (filter floss - chaeto/phytoplankton & copepods - marinepure block) in the other chamber - I'm not going to bother with Chemipure Blue or any of that

    What I wanted to know is which should be where? Am I better off putting the filter media in chamber one or chamber two? Would the copepods, etc, be better off after or before the water gets filtered through the carbon or does it just not make a difference?

    Thank you! :)

    the water should first run into the filter floss followed by any pads and carbon. lastly it should run through the chaeto and copeopod section.
