Hello, I decided to replace my top fin silenstream filter cartridge with DIY filter sponge that I bought and cut to fit. Is theres any step I need to do before or after I replace it? Thanks

You can cut away the felt material off the plastic inner frame of cartridge, then place it with whatever diy media you will be placing in the reservoir.

That will be the most effective way of retaining the beneficial bacteria.
