I wanted to know if there was a specific way to change the filters. For example, do I rinse it in old tank water before I put it on? ...or do I even rinse it at all? Itís a carbon filter, and it says to replace every month.
I have a 2 gallon tank at the moment (will upgrade to a 10 in 2 months) with 3 Ping-Pong-sized Marimo Moss Balls and a small Anubia plant.
I am not cycling at the moment since I assume the tank is too small to do it correctly so I currently do 2 - 50% wc a week. The only reason I don't do a 100% is because of the live plants.
