I'll have to pick up some MTS this weekend.
If the tank is well planted, you can change the filter, wash the media under the tap, or throw the filter away...and you will have no issues bacteria-wise. The plants take up a lot of ammonia/ammonium.
If you can't find MLS locally (they can be difficult to acquire) I can send you some on some plants, as you are in Canada, if you pay the postage.
