Red Sea Nano Filter question

I've received my Red Sea Nano Filter in the mail today and I was wondering if I can replace one of the little sponge inside by a little bag of charcoal that I have and if I can use that extra sponge to put around the part that's in the tank so that my fishy's tail won't get stuck in it.

The beauty of those filters is that you can put pretty much whatever you like in them.

Yes and yes! I love those filters, I have 3. I agree with jodah, you can fill 'em with whatever you'd like! I buy large filter pads, cut them to size and sew them into little bags I fill with carbon. I make several at a time so I don't have to worry about them last minute. Also, the filters for the tetra 3i will fit in diagonally, then you can put filter material on either side :)

Did not know that about the 3i cartridges! Awesome. Now when I can finally get my red sea nano, I'll be golden.

I dont use carbon, I just stuff mine full of aquarium sponge.
You can use sponge or a piece of nylon hose around the intake to keep bettas fins from getting stuck in the intake area.
