    So I’ve been having issues with my Aquaclear filter and I’ve tried everything to fix it. I think it’s time to just replace the whole thing. If I take my seeded media and transfer it in a new Aquaclear will I have any adverse effects as far as cycle goes? Thanks.

    You should be fine. There is some bacteria on the filter housing but most of it is on the media so it shouldn't affect your cycle at all. I actually had to replace one of my HOB filters a couple of weeks ago and all is well.

    Ok awesome. Yeah from what I know there’s good bac. all through out the tank(gravel,decor, etc.) and along with the already seeded media I don’t think it would do anything. I only have the one fish in there too so.. just want to get some feedback. Thank you!
