Removing 1 filter

Hi,

I got a Aqueon 30 HOB filter (3 months) from the tank kit and i bought a Rena XP3 (1 month)
My tank is cycled and planted
I'd like to know if i can remove the HOB?
Do i need to wait a little more?
Thank you

Eric

I'd say go a head and pull it. You have plants and a canister. They'll help stabilize things.
