Hey there. African cichlids don't do well in a 10 gal for many reasons. 1would be aggression 2 would be you could stunt their growth. Yea you can change all their water. Just don't mess with the filters media. That's were all the BB is.

Water changes

Ya a ten is way too small. Think of it like a pet dog, they need room to run around, to play, in a ten gallon, they take two-three strides, and have to turn around. They might survive, but they'll be stressed, probably get sick often, and you'll want to do daily water changes. I'd get a bigger tank, at least a 30 preferably a 55.
