Ok so dont know how familiar you are with HOB filters. Its a Penguin 170. So the water is brought up through an intake tube, then it would be brought across a filter with carbon and then it goes under the suspended biowheel and turns it. I have heard if you soak the biowheel in your main sump the good bacteria will reside there as if it would on a peice of LR. Im wondering if I can just pull the biowheel off and put it in my tank and put a new biowheel on the filter.

I would go with Hara's suggestion and it is cheaper.

I sont know much about biowheel filters because I do not use them.

I have a bunch of rubble in my fuge that I take out and throw in an HOB AC for the filtration. Then I put it back in fuge when I am done
