Marineland Bio Wheel replacement?

I recently tore down my saltwater tank and would like to use the filter from that tank on a FW tank. Its a Marineland Penguin 200. The filter is relatively new and cleaned up great. I was wondering though if I could reuse the bio wheel or should I just get another one? Any help is appreciated.

I see no reason to change it out. It is likely to not have much bacteria left if it has dried but other than salt, I would assume nothing harmful. And salt is not a real problem at that level.
