Default Re: filters when cycled?

Clean the sponge once a month like you have been doing or when it is clogged and restricting the water flow.....Just rinse and squeeze it enough to remove solid particles......You can take the filter off the tank occasionally and clean it with a brush and garden hose, but make sure the sponge stays in tank water while you do it.
I got off the porch and ran with the big dogs. Now I can't get back on the porch!
