I recently acquired a H.O.T Magnum 250 with a tank purchase and tbh im not sure what to put in it as it was empty when i got it. I looked up what comes with one and i guess i was just wondering if theres anything better to put in there than the stock stuff. Basically if anyone is using one, what do you have in it or what would be the best stuff to put in there. Thanks

I use polyester pillow batting from Walmart to fill the container and then I put the blue foam sleeve around that. If you use the pleated cylinder for water polishing, I also put the blue foam sleeve around it, too. It keeps it from clogging up so fast. I don't use the activated charcoal that is recommended because I only use it for removing medications. My 250 is hooked up to a surface skimmer and is not my main filter.
