No need to replace any bio media, only fine floss, as a matter of fact a lot of people back flush their classics to lengthen the time before a thorough cleaning.
Take the can to the sink and turn the input at the bottom downwards to the sink, pull the floss, pour a few gallons of tank water over the bio, replace floss, should get you a few more months of service before a thorough cleaning.
