So, after getting rid of the carbon, how should I order my canister's media (top to bottom)?

I know it should with rough mechanical, then fine mechanical like the polishing pads. After that, I'm a bit lost.

If I add Purigen, where would it be located in the canister?

You can keep everything the same....just take out the carbon and replace it with Purigen. I believe Seachem recommends putting the Purigen in the same spot where you put your carbon; however, lots of folks put their Purigen so the filtered water hits it very last before going back into the tank.

If I were running Purigen in an Oscar tank, I'd set it up as follows: Intake --> Heavy mechanical --> Mechanical sponges --> biomedia --> floss/polishers --> Output
