where did you buy the filter from ?
if from a store,i would ask them about it,tell them about how much trouble
you're having,even if you bought it on line,someone must be able to sort
it out,it's a nightmare...i'd be really frustrated.

I bought it online, from an Ebay seller. It really does frustrate me.
I've tried a coupla things today. I removed the ceramic media and didn't snap the baskets together. Hopefully, next week they'll be easier to remove :P

I removed the ceramic media because I thought it maybe adding weight.
Today's water change was 2 days later than it should of been. So the tank will be fine until Monday(normal water change day) and I may re-add the ceramics.

It's also sitting in a cup of water so the BB should hold fine.
