The manufacture does not list the replacement cartridge, but it does use the API size 10 cartridges. Hope that helps some people out.

The dark rocks are a few from the ones I had in the base of the Betta's old bowl. After moving the Betta to a cup, I stirred around the old water and rocks vigorously, let the silt settle, and then poured the water in the new tank to provide a starter for the beneficial nitrifying bacteria. After a while I'll add some ghost shrimp and possibly five or six Ember Tetras. (I know the Tetras are pushing it, especially since the tank doesn't have an under gravel filter to increase the nitrifying bacteria colony. But my Betta seems to be a woos, so I may try it and pull them if the chemistry goes awry).
The only thing negative I have to say about the unit is I wish the cord that goes from the pump to the light was twelve inches longer. That would give me ultimate flexibility in positioning the pump. But I can make it longer if I want and it works fine for the decor I'm using now, so it's not a big deal. I'm not worried about finding a replacement filter. On tiny tanks like this I generally don't use the filter that comes with it or I modify the filter so I replace only half the filter at a time. Of course I have to change out the filter halves more often, but since I often push the capacity of a tank this allows me to keep more of the benefit of the nitrifying bacteria that colonizes the filter. Even if you don't want to go to this trouble, the filter has a sponge pre-filter that comes before the main filter that holds the activated charcoal. Just don't rinse out the sponge at the same time you change the main filter and you'll keep the a solid colony of the beneficial bacteria anyway.
UPDATE: A month or two after setup, I added a small albino plecostomus (~1"), two ghost shrimp (~1" each), and one cherry red shrimp (~1/3"). I have not changed my feeding routine of two Betta pellets three times a day, with an occasional third pellet added. All are thriving. The shrimp have all molted at least once. The tank is algae free. The bottom is free of visible detritus. The Amazon Sword put out a rhizome, which I anchored in the opposite back corner. The sprout is now a little more than half the height of the aquarium. I couldn't be more pleased.
