There is not a lot of room for what that guide talks about in this thing.
The aqua tech allows me to use that guide and have a prefilter sponge.

I do not replace the cartridge with a water change. I was replacing them monthly like the package said. In either case i have take the input given and done the changes. The smell is gone and the fish look much better.
I know this means starting over with my cycle but in the long run i think it is worth it.
With the added sponge on the intake and clinoptilolite media my BB should have plenty of places to settle in long term
Hello
Yes, when it stinks , a lot of times the cartridge or carbon/filter floss needs changed. Imagine putting clean water over a dirty filter over and over again, the water will never get clean no matter how many wc you do. So, you did the right thing. Some of those HOB you have to change every 2 weeks, depending on brand. Maybe feed a little less too, if fish old enough.
