Yes, you want to rinse the filter media in either tank water from a water change or dechlorinated water and since you have a snail in the 5g it should maintain the cycle for you you
Don't change the filter media until it is falling apart-just a rinse/swish in old tank water or dechlorinated water a couple of times a month and when the water flow slows to maintain good water flow...you want it to look dirty...this is the good bacteria that helps keep the water safe for the fish
