Hi ch2,

I have a Fluval 404. It is great! I did replace my charcoal media after 2 months of use because I had an algae problem. The white tube ceramic type media only needs to be cleaned when you clean the filter. I clean my filter once a month.

I have also found a different brand of charcoal packets which are cheaper than the Fluval brand and they are the same size as the Fluval brand. It is the Hagen brand of charcoal called AguaClear 300.
It comes in a 3-piece value pack for around $9.00 ??? If I remeber correctly and that is from Pet Smart. I\'m sure we can find it online for cheaper. Possibly at Big Al\'s.

If you have any other questions about the filter media, the people at Fluval customer service are really nice. Give them a call.
