So my cleaning routines for my filters have never served me wrong, until recently when I had a semi-deadly ammonia spike after cleaning my filter. I don’t fully clean the filter, because I know that you should not wash away the bio stars and other media that has good bacteria in them. What I the normal routine for cleaning a canister filter? I really do not want to change my routine, because it has worked until this one time. Any help would be great. Thank you.
