If so have you been following its directions to the letter?

Yea i know that i was just hoping for a rough time period so thanks for that! And yes i have precisely with each water change, i even bought a 20 gallon bucket to know exactly how much i am taking out to be 100% sure. I am just getting inpatient i suppose! Haha i cannot wait until this cycle is finished.
Hey quick question, I have the Fluval C4 and it has a red pop up button thing on it to show when the filter needs replacing, and i know most people just rinse there filter media in some of there tank water, but what about in my situation? Should i just leave it be or give it a rinse?
