Do I need to wash the ceramic biomedia?
I have a freshwater Aquapod 12-gallon. I'm a total n00b to this, but nowhere in the instructions does it say to wash the ceramic biomedia in the filter. I have noticed that my water has become quite cloudy, and was wondering if that would have anything to do with not washing the ceramics (I've been replacing the carbon and washing the bioballs and using a gravel cleaner, etc.).
Seriously though, nowhere online does it say whether or not to wash the ceramic media. I would've washed it anyway, but it says that it's used for building up good bacteria, so I'm really lost on this.
