Clean out the FX5 very well. I would set it up with biomedia (Seachem Matrix) filling the bottom two trays and use fine mechanical/polishing media in the top try. This would be one or both of Fluvals fine/plishing pads for the FX5, filter floss, or 100% polyester pillow stuffing crammed in as tight as possible.
Thanks for the quick response.
So i dont have to get new sponges for the FX-5, just rinse them out thouroughly?
When i decide to move my africans from my old tank, do i need to take the filter (Fluval 4 plus) out of that tank and set it up on the new tank before i put them in? If so how long should the fluval 4 plus run on the new tank before i put my africans in?
