Change Filter Cartridge?


Recommended Posts

Why do you think you need to change the cartridge? I wouldn't worry about the directions on the box telling you to do it at a specific time. I use my filter media for a long while - simply rinsing it out in a bucket of old tank water.

Can you give us some more info??

:D

OK - I asked about the plants 'cause they tend to have more waste.

Does the filter media appear dark? (I am assuming that you have the floss in the outer bost cartridge spot)

If it does I would try to vigorously rinse the cartridge out in old tank water (If your tank is too small to have enough waste water - just use dechlor water you don't want to use tap water as untreated tap water will kill off your bio bugs)

I'm thinking that perhaps your media are just too full of gunk & that the water is looking for the pasth of least resistance.

If something else is going on - post back with more details or a pic

:D
