if you are changing everything submersed in the filter (the filter media bag) you will need to recycle the tank all over again, and every time you change the filter, its another cycle. IMO get a filter that has separate compartments and at least once compartment that you wont change
What kind of filter are you using? If there is a sponge of some kind in there don't change that as it is where most of your beneficial bacteria live. The carbon however can be changed without adversely affecting the rest of the tank.
