I have had my canister filter up and running for a little over 2 months now and have not cleaned it yet. I know I need to clean it but I am not sure what procedure I need to follow?
I have 1-1/2 levels with rings, 1-1/2 levels of filter floss. Should I replace the floss and rinse the sponges and rings in the water change bucket? Thanks

With canister filters I would suggest not to clean all the filter media inside it. What I did with mine when I had canisters was I would change half of all the media. So half of your rings, half of your filter floss and half of the sponges. So this way you dont destroy all your bacteria.
