I'm sorry to hear about your loach. Have you added anything recently?

IMO.. changing the other filter cartridge next week is too soon. I always waited 2-3 weeks between each filter change when I used my HOB. Although I had two HOB's with two cartridges per so it was more like each cartridge every month or more. Another option is just to rinse them and not totally dispose of them. HTH

If it's a bio-wheel, you can change out both cartriges at the same time. I do it with my Emperor 400 with no problems at all.

Which loach was it, the clown? How are your other water parameters? What's the temp?

sorry to hear that bud. mystery deaths are always unfortunate...but i suppose they're better than unmysterious deaths, because you can't blame yourself for a mysterious death!
