What type of filter? Generally a media change and a good cleaning are all that's needed. If you have used copper medication while using the filter, that can cause issues. Copper can be absorbed and later leach out of materials like plastic and silicone. It is highly toxic to invertebrates such as those commonly found on LR. Sorry, I can't help w/ the Mag.

As Mike said changing out the media and doing a fish less cycle will generate the proper bacteria. If copper has been used either in the tank or with the filter then I'd start from scratch personally to keep from limiting your inverts selections in the future.

Tropical Fish Hobbyist Magazine is one of the best ones.

Our SW book library covers many excellent books as well.

If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
