    I was looking into the aquaclears but to get the BB off the old cartridge and on the the filter media could I just stick the cartridge in there and let it run for a week or so or would I have to start from the beginning again

    No, you wouldn't have to start over with your cycle, if that's what you mean.

    I started off alot like you have in the hobby (see my 10G journal in my sig)

    My cartridge in the kit filter I bought was nothing more than a plastic frame with sponge material...I pulled these cartridge(s) out of the filter, and put them into a bit of tank water in a bowl, so that they didn't dry out, and kill my BB (beneficial bacteria)...filter media must always stay wet

    Of course, this was after I had cycled the tank, with fish (newbie)

    Set up the AC30 on my 10 gallon, ready to go with the sponge and media it came with...then, carefully cut away the sponge section of my cartridge from the Tetra filter, and added it to the media basket of the AC30, below my bags of ceramic media

    Turned the filter on, set the correct temp for the tank, and all was well...the sponge material seeded my ceramic media, then after about a week, I ditched the sponge and used only ceramic media for my BB
