White specs coming out of filter

Postby Gary fergusson » Sat Mar 31, 2012 11:40 am

HI. I have noticed tiny white specs coming from the filter, am I assuming right that some of the media needs to be replaced? I am running an external Fluval 205 which has been running for about 2-3 months with its original media, 2 x carbon, 2 x biomax and sponge. I'm assuming that the specs are coming from the biomax as its the same colour, so any advise on if I should change both sets or just the 1 and the other at a later date, and how long before I should change the carbon? Thanks for any help
