I would personally do foam, floss, then bio.
The beauty of canister filters is that it allows for everyone to adjust their tanks to personal preferences. :]
Sure, filter floss. I didn't say their was anything wrong with adding more mechanical filtration, nor did I imply as much. Although it seems wasteful to have so much unused space the canister, just adding foam of the same density as the bottom layer doesn't add much to the filtration. Floss or something finer, on the other hand, does, so that's a good idea.
I forgot that mine has a finer filter layer on top of the ceramics so it amounts to the same thing without having had to add it separately.
I'm probably going to take out the ceramics and the plastic "bio-balls" next cleaning as all they do is make little rattly noises as the water passes through them anyway.
