Question What about my filter?

When I do water change, what should I do with my filter? Do I just let it there without water or should I put it in aquarium water so bacteria don't die? I'm cycling my tank

I unplug my filter & let it stay where its at unless I need to clean the filter components. It shouldn't dry out unless you are taking a really long time to do a water change & not all of the water should come out of it, at least it doesn't happen with my HOB filters.
