You don't need to change filter cartridges until they're physically falling apart. If it's clogged up, you can gently rinse it in used aquarium water. Changing the cartridge will likely be detrimental as it houses a large number of beneficial bacteria. Keep an eye on ammonia, nitrite and nitrate and do water changes if needed (i.e. if ammonia or nitrite rise above 0.25ppm or so).

I have never had mollies because they are plant eaters and I have heard they are sensitive, but I would also like to know what kind do not need salted water. I considered getting some... I have guppies, and I have live plants. Will the salt bother the plants?
