penguin bio wheel 350
 
I have a penguin bio wheel 350 and it has the bio wheel along with 4 slots for filters or other things. I have one filter on both sides of the unit and so I have one open slot on both sides. Does anybody have any recomendations on what to put into the 2 open slots?

double up the filter pads.....or you can get some ammonia cabronate

I have a Pengiun BioWheel 200 and I just double of the filter pads

Extra filter media like Johnny said.
They also make media baskets to fit that filter for carbon, etc.

what does the carbon and other media packets do for the tank?

Thats a good question...
Allot of people think carbon is a waste of money.
Carbon is needed to remove medication from the tank if you are done treating your fish for something.
They also make different biological media to fit in the baskets.
I just double up on filter media myself.
