Cleaning filter media question
Why cant i clean filter sleeve with tap water if i ring the water out after?
It probably won't destroy your tank, it's just not a good idea. The chlorine will kill any of the good bacteria built up in the filter, and some of that will potentially get into your tank. I wouldn't expect it to be enough to do any real damage, but I try to give my bacteria all the help I can.
