Changing Filter Media/ Broken Hood
Hey guys. I'm new to AA but have been a advid forum goer on other sites. I have a few questions about my tank.
My florescent hood just died on me. I thought it was the bulb so I bought a new one. That one didn't want to light either. Is there any cheap quick fix to a problem like this or am I better off getting a new one all together.
My second question is about filter media. I had a real dirty tank and it was almost like my filter wasn't working. Turns out (I'm stupid) I needed to replace the sponge and rinse out the other parts. I learned after I shoudl have used tank water and not the faucet. I only rinsed the bio media and carbon pouch (I believe thats what it is) and replaced the sponge all together. Should I be replacing all three parts?
Thanks for your help!
