I just got this but not sure how to put in the bio ball and carbon, what goes in the bottom tray then the middle tray then the top tray? Next does this filter from the top down or does it filter from the bottom up. So does the water go to the bottom and filter up and out or does it flow down ward and out?
Thank you love you guys

The AT Series of Canister Filters flows from bottom to top. We recommend placing a blue filter pad in the bottom tray, followed by carbon in the second tray, and bio-balls or ceramic rings in the top tray. Additional media can be added based off of the needs of your aquarium. You may also stack media on top of filter pads in each tray for added mechanical filtration; just make sure the trays are not overloaded so that the flow rate is not adversely affected.
