Need To Switch Filters


Recommended Posts

My mom hates the noise made by my filter, and I hate the fact that it's a super ineffective Topfin, so I have decided to get a new filter. But I'm worried. I know full well I can't just toss it and start with a brand new filter, so what do I do? Do I have to keep it and use both for a while or what? :huh::unsure: :listen:

You can also take the filter floss (the white spongy stuff) from the old and either put it in a place in the new filter or put it in a nylon and hang it in the back of your tank.

I would recommend not doing a water change at the same time as you do replace the filter.

Cut up the foam and put as much in the new filter as you can.

If it *really* won't fit then simply squeeze all the gunge and gunk from the old foam pads into the media of the new filter: you'll get tons of biobugs in by doing that. :) Just keep a close eye on the parameters for the enxt week or so afterwards. :)
