put your media in the tank to keep it alive until the new filter gets there.

Would you recommend that I use the new filter media with new filter or the old? The old one is in pretty bad shape anyways and I was going to replace it soon.

keep the foam and biomax. when you set up the new filter.run the old stuff with some new foam for a month or two.then you can slowly update the old foam with new stuff.this should help keep your bacteria alive. when you put it in your tank,keep it in a high flow area.
