I don't replace them till they fall apart or I.can't get them clean anymore. Those thing normally don't last long maybe a couple months till they fall apart.

I stopped using them years ago and started buying filter floss to stuff in the filter

What kind if filter do you have? It's called Poly-fiber, and petsmart and petco carries it. Walmart maybe. The balls are BioMax. I buy the HBH floss and fluval BioMax. Aquarist has it too, (same company though)

You can by crafting polyfil at a place like Walmart, Michels, or jo-anns. You will find a large bag or quilt batting will cost about five bucks
