Recently I got rid of an old filter that was absolutely horrible about a little over a month ago. I have a 29 gallon tank and bought the aquaclear 50 for it and it works wonders! I absoluately love it! I rinsed out the sponge in tank water today and replaced the carbon. I've read to not change/clean the media all at once since it messes up with the biological filtration.
My questions are:
- How often do I replace the biomax filter media?
- Should I replace the carbon every 3 or 4 weeks?
- What's the difference between using the zeo-carb and the regular activated carbon media?
- The difference between using BioMax and Ammonia remover?
Thanks everyone for your time!
