The rocks were just 2 that had some rock versus lump hammer & cold chisel interaction

I have two rectangular sponge pads along the channel under the lid.The more coarse one first (where the water enters the channel) and the finer one near to the exit wheel.
If you have just set up your tank it may be cloudy for a couple of days from a bacterial bloom which is usual for new tanks.

thank yu for that!! i did get them right.
because they were the filters that came with the tank, i cut up some other filters to fit the wheel and other filters, put a carbon filter in as well, but soaked them in my big tank's water for a while. once fitted the water cleared in a couple of hours, put some mollies in to test it (i have a few i don't mind losing) and they have been there for nearly a week and still swimming so hoping the tank is safe for the little ones
