Rinse in old tank water. The first time can be plain tap water but after that anytime you clean your canister you rinse with tank water. You don't need bags since they have nice little baskets unless you just want bags.

Gotcha. Seems simple enough now. The rest of my stuff is sitting on my doorstep as we type, according to the tracking, so I will be getting things finalized & rolling pretty soon.

I clean my filters in tap water, but they don't get cleaned more than twice a year. Once your filter is established it will take much more than tap water to cause a problem.
