If/when you buy the new filter, it will come with a sponge and a bag of bio-media, which looks like little ceramic pellets...once you have cycled, and are ready to add the new filter, you will take the holey-sponge from the Whisper (it's attached to a frame, just gently pull it off) while still wet with tank water and BB and fold it up and put it into the new filter...you are transferring the BB that you grew...along with the sponge the new filter comes with and the new bio-media...instead of the charcoal, I bought more of the ceramic pellets and used those instead, will hold up alot longer than the charcoal will.
