yes you can put the used media on top of the foam that comes with the aquaclears that is what i have done to kick start my cycle with my newest tank

THANK YOU. i have asked about how to do this on three different sites and you're the only person that's answered my question. I'll look in to the Aqua Clear 20 and see about getting it tomorrow.

Thanks everyone for your help!

lol no problem. You can always cut the media you have to match the aquaclear 20's baskit. i always add filter floss to all my aquaclears because i find the sponge that comes with the aquaclears very porous and the filter floss can pick up finner particles. so my spgone is at the bottom then a cut to fit filter floss the carbon and then the bio max on top.

Do that or put the old one on the bottom for only about 1 month and follow the proper AQ media which is the mechanical,chemical,and biological inserts. That would be the best way
