I would use the carbon pad until dirty and then ditch it or save it in reserve for a time when you want to remove medicine or color. Normal use, I don't need the carbon and find they clog quickly so that they need changing in a couple weeks. Bottom line for me- no carbon pad.

I put mine in - plate with legs down, barrels, rocks, course pad, fine pad, plate with legs up, from bottom to top.
