Hello going on 4 week my question is when do I change out the filter media in my 6 gal Nano tank?
Honestly, very rarely. Your media is where alot of your bacteria live. The only thing i change is my bag of chemi pure blue and thats every 3-4 months
Iam guessing your using a hob filter? If so you can rinse the cartridges in sw to remove alot of the gunk
does the filter media contain charcoal if so you will need to change it out depending on the amount of load on your tank (fish poo). Charcoal once full will start to release ammonia back into your tank, causing more issues.
