I dont know the names of filters but mine is a "hang on the back" filter, I think that is what yours is as well...am i right? What I do is put some extra filter material behind the actual filter cartridge and change them out alternately.

From what I've read on here, as long as you rinse your filter cartridge in tank water regularly and the flow of the filter is still good, you dont have to replace your filter. Its when it gets gunky and blocks the flow that you should change it, I would imagine its the same for that extra material, its always good to have that back up around.
