New filter

Hello everyone, I just bought a new filter for my 10 gallon, and I was wondering if I should just replace my old filter that is currently running in the tank or do I have to do anything special when I'm replacing them

Ok, so take the cartridge from the top fin and put it behind the penguin cartridge?
