Not sure if this is the correct section for this. So I decided to upgrade from a 2 gallon to a 10 gallon. I just set it all up, turn the filter on and black stuff was coming out. I realized it was carbon and that I was supposed to rinse the carbon bag, I didn't know. It didn't say on the directions.
So do I have to take all the water out and clean it out, or is it ok and it will settle to the bottom? Thanks
