That would be an excellent idea. Try and utilize everything you can in terms of getting the new filter capable of colonizing bacteria quickly. When I have gotten new filters I make sure I use some of the existing and established bio media in the new filter and even old filter floss that's real dirty and full of bacteria. I just throw it in the new filter and let it run; really helps with cycling a new tank.
Seems like aquaclear is getting quite the reputation. I love aquaclear and I have used most models. My favorites are the big 110 models. I loooooooove the big waterfall.
