My tank has completed the cycling process and I have 12 juvenille cichlids in it, doing well. The water quality is good. Ammonia 0, Nitrites 0, Nitrates at 5, no movement on the nitrates which makes me wonder but that's another question. My question is when should I start cleaning/changing the filter media. I have an emporer 400 and a Eheim 2215.

I would wait 30 days to clean the emporor, unless it really clogs up or slows down. The canister can usually wait even longer, maybe 2-3 months
