Brown Filter Cartridge

Recently I got some anacharis to put in my tank that I'm cycling. I was looking at the filter cartridge yesterday and it was... brown. Is this normal?? Is it just because the plant is a little dirty?

You want your filter cartridge to be brown, it means it has BB on it. How long has your tank been set up?

Ok thanks :) I just wanted to make sure. It has been set up since Wednesday night. I'm cycling it right now, hopefully soon I'm going to get the API test kit.

Good that you've got that coming. You may want to do 50% water changes every other day until you get it just to be in the safe side if you're doing fish IN.
