Thread: filter wool

  1. Default filter wool

    0 Not allowed!
    H! Does anyone know how often should I change the filter wool in my 60l goldfish aquarium? Once a month is ok? Or in every water change once a week? Also should I replace it with a new one or just wash it and use the same?

    Every set-up can be a little different. I would suggest to start by checking it every week. Once you see it starting to become clogged, replace it with a new one.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Depending on how gunky it is, I have gauged whether or not to just rinse, or to replace, whenever I'm doing maintenance. If its still looks more white than brown, I rinse it - if its pretty much gunked up, I replace it. There's no real rule for that one. I personally just don't like to make more garbage than I need to, so I rinse/replace pretty much any time I can. No need to throw away good bacteria either.

    Depends on the filter system how often you need to replace something
