Do you mean to cut a bit off the sponge, or take some of the gritty stuff out of the bag, or both. Where do I put it then - in a net bag or somehow in the new filter.
Thanks for being so patient with me, by the way!!

Yes if you can do both it will help. How ever you can get some of the old stuff in the new filter will help. You're welcome BTW.

Thanks for that. Can I contact you again in the future, for more advice? I'll leave you in peace for now - it's after midnight here in Wales - don't know what time it is with you!

If you have room you can stuff either a new full filter at the bottom of your current filter or cut a chunk off (or just use a piece of filter pad) and stuff it at the bottom or in a side of your current filter. Then you can take that out and place it in the new filter for the 60L tank.

Oh, ok. Thanks. I want to get everything straight in my head first so I know what I'm doing when I go ahead with the change. Would it be ok to use new sand in the upgrade and maybe put some of the old sand in a net or something in the new tank? The old sand is quite dirty now and wouldn't look good!
