Can someone dumb down wet/dry filter maintenance for me?
About 3 months ago I upgraded from a glass 75g w/ a canister filter to a 150g acrylic tank with a built in wet/dry filter. I have NO CLUE what I'm doing with this filter. I don't know how/when to clean it, where to put the filter media, how full the tank should be, etc. :|
It's safe to say I'm CLUELESS when it comes to this thing. I've looked online to try to find a basic guide to these things and have been unsuccessful thus far.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!!!!!
Thank you in advance ;-)
I've never heard of a wet/dry filter. What does it do? o_O
It's the PRE-filter that you need to be worried about, primarily. Whatever media you are using for that needs to be changed/cleaned periodically.
Yep. The bio-media in the filter itself usually doesn't need much attention at all. If it does get gunked up to the point where there's a serious reduction in water-flow, you can gently rinse it in old tank water.
