nbassis said:I am not understanding you all. Why would you ever want to wash the bioballs. Are you kidding me. This is a saltwater tank yes. you never touch the bioballs. Just let everything sit. Give your tank a year and everything will be fine. DO not ever rinse your bioballs. Just touching them kills all the good suff on them. Just change the filter you ahev above the balls every month or so.
