Unplug from outlet, Pull the lever on top to lock the syphon, lift lever, move canister to bathroom, Pop the clips, lift head, remove baskets, clean pads/charcoal. Do not wrinse bio media with tap water, use tank water to wrinse bio. Empty all poo water out of canister. Put it all back together, reattach the locking lever. Canister will re-fill. Top off tank, plug in, leak check, watch fish swim.

Where are your instructions? Lol
