Depends on if you have well water or town water. If town water you killed it.Nathan_betta3010 said:I’m asking because I’m going to give a friend my filter and it’s cartridge but accidentally rinsed it in tap water. Will this eliminate the chances for nitrifying bacteria to grow on it or will it be fine?
It should be fine, you are supposed to rinse the cartridges before using them anyway. In the future when the cartridges are seeded, just rinse them in tank water while doing a water change. Hope this helpsNathan_betta3010 said:It was a brand new cartridge. there was no bacteria previously. Just asking if it prevents it in the future.
