it has a filter sponge pad also in front of the activated carbon. does thins mean anything? on the dvd it says that i should buy a capsule thnig to go on the filter pad which i did.

i have 3 fancy goldfish in there at the moment (6-7cm), ( im in the process of moving tanks)
ammonia 0
nitrite 0
nitrate around 20 -25

i use the master kit thing and not the dip thing. i do about 30 -40% water changes each week

also how much are these filters???

ok then its no good, you should never change the bio-filter, only things you need to change is the mechanical and chemical but you leave the bio-filter alone

ive never changed it, i didnt know what to do - books confusing.
ive changed carbon bit though a couple of times

is the filter the biological bit?? do i need to get a new filter?

well if there is something in the filter that you dont change (preferably a sponge) then it might work, but it still seems like a weak filter so getting another one deffinatly wont hurt at all.

thanks, i think i will keep it on its own and if i see that my tank isnt haddling it i will buy another. i dont have much money most of the time (only 14) so i can just buy a filter. but if things even look like they are going down hill i will be done to pets@home in a flash.

well if you want to save money, get the Hagen Aqua clear filters, if you have a bit more to spend then get the Penguin bio-wheel filter. Both have good reviews and both have a part in them that you dont change, just that the penguin has a bit better bio-filtration.

Have you cycled the tank yet?
