    I have an internal filter on my planted 10 gal ember tetra tank. It keeps getting clogged all the time and maintenance is a hassle. What is a good option? It is a standard aqueon 10 gallon with versa top. 0711171907.jpg

    Will the tank stay cycled if I just swap them out?

    In terms of switching over to a new filter. If you can, run both for a couple of weeks. Or you can take apart the internal Aqueon filter and stuff the sponge, and biogrid into the new filter.

    +1 for Canister if you have room. Or an Aquaclear 20
