    Filter Changes

    I am not sure if there already is a section for this, but couldn't find it. How often should the filter be changed? I know it contains good bacteria and such, so how long do I keep the filter going before a change? I read somewhere that people just rinse out the filter and scrape it a little when doing wather changes in the emptied water. So, how often to you replace the filter cartridge?

    If you don't over feed, it should be O.K to completely change the filter once the tank is cycled. About once every couple months is my guess.
    Yes most people just rinse it off in used tank water, and replace it once its completely falling apart. lol

    I agree with Matt. I squeeze and rinse it in the water I removed from the tank mostly to get all the gunk off, and then I put it right back in the filter.
