    I would suggest only using bio-media in all four of the baskets. That always worked great when I had used a 405. The below link is for the product that I use in my filters
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I have just found your iteam about the 405.

    My tank has been used before so it does contain some bactiria,
    What I eventually put in was---

    1 -top-- POLYWOOL

    As suggested by Pets at home
    but the water is slightly cloudy
    and the Nightrate high
    There isn,t any fish in it yet as i'm not realy satisfied with it.I'm no expert on pumps and would be thank full for help.
