Anyone have an aqueon HOB filter?
Hello everybody! I've got yet another question. I'm running my 20 g. tall tank with an aqueon HOB filter as well as a small sponge filter. I'm wondering how to go about changing the filter cartridge in the aqueon. I have new filter cartridges but I'm not sure how to "introduce" them when the time comes. I've read that you shouldn't just take the old one out all at once, but if I don't do that how do I ever get the new one in there? I'm a bit confused.
I've had the tank running now for 3 months. It is completely cycled and pretty much stocked. The water parameters are testing great: ammonia 0, nitrite 0, and nitrate 10. When I do a water change I swish the filter around in the removed tank water and just put it back. I'm thinking I should be changin it though soon, just don't know exactly how to go about doing that. If someone has an aqueon and can help me out I'd appreciate it! Thanks.
