New Canister filter, how often do I clean and input/output Q
Okay so I got my first Canister filter and have a few questions, the directions are minimal and I want to make sure I do it right. The tank is 65 gallons.
1. It says to clean the foam every 3 months and everything else replaced monthly, is that true? How often should I be cleaning vs replacing?
2. When I clean the tank, do I turn it off and then if so do I have to empty it to prime it again?
3. If the output is too strong causing my plants to sway and lean will a spray bar be better?
Sorry for the dumb questions but I am so new to this type of filter I am used to HOB's.
