When you say filter change, do you mean that you took all your filter media out?! You may have gone into a mini cycle?

Your filter media is where all the beneficial bacteria (BB) is, not the water. I am yet to change out ANY of my filter media in either my canister or HOB because you destroy your colony of BB that was produced through cycling. Do you test your water? If so, what are you're parameters (pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate?) and temp? What is the stock list and tank size?
