W/C And Filter Change.
When i do my weekly w/c, is it reccomended to change the mesh in the filter also?
It seems to become really dirty really quickly. is this normal?

NO! If your filter is clogged, rinse it a lil in tank water that you just vacuumed outta your tank.
Replacing it and/ or using tap water for cleaning will kill off your bacteria, you do not want that.
The only time it should be replaced if its falling apart in pieces on you :-)

Maybe a bit more info about your filter and this mesh would be in order so we're all on the same page.

Do you mean the mesh bag that holds the filter media? Those shouldn't need to be replaced for a long time, or just a simple rinsing to clean them.

If its a larger sponge type mesh with larger holes, its a pre-filter but it will still have a biological effect in your filtering as others have pointed out.
