mine is top basket: white filter wool, 2nd basket : media, 3rd basket : media and 4th basket : sponge....

Mine was the pump directly suck from the white filter.... thus, the water circulation was passed thru the sponge follow by the medias ( 2 layer) then lastly filter by the wool again...

u can place a sponge with rough surface and big holes at this layers to filter out the large debris so the finer debris (fish poo) can go into the bio home layer..
