I'm looking to pull my internal filter and run an external. However, I'm unsure about what to do.
If I just have the external running, I'll lose the bacteria that was in the internal. If I run both, then the bacteria would be split 50/50?
Any suggestions please.
What is in your internal filter? Just a sponge?

No. I run an internal 'juwel' filter.
Put the media from the internal into the external. If it won't fit, just hang them from a mesh bag in the tank near the filter intake.
So I'd have the new media and the old media in the one filter? How soon could I get rid of the old media?
