I have a 65 gallon planted tank, with a top-fin 60 HOB
, and a marine-land magnum 220 canister filter. The media (well sponge part) inside the canister filter is falling apart and I need to replace it, what is the best way to do so, and not send me through a mini cycle if possible? I was thinking just shoving the old filter pad into the HOB
and let the new filter pad gain BB, and then slowly remove pieces of the old one in the HOB
. Would that be a good route to go?
