I'd give it another 2 solid months (assuming things continue to go along without any setbacks in terms of your cycle) and then go ahead and change out the floss. After that, you can change out the floss whenever it gets gunky, and give a light rinse to the bioballs or whatever biological filtration media you have.

I hope this helps - over the years one of the hardest lessons I have learned is patience and the importance of letting a tank just sit there to stabilize and achieve balance. I am not a patient person so this has been a biggie, but has paid off for me many times over. Best of luck to you.

Alright, I'll give it a couple more months then before I do anything to it. I know what you mean about it being difficult if you're not a very patient person, I'm the same way (or at least I used to be), but the hobby has certainly been helping me to become a much more patient person
