Can I use old ceramic media?
Sorry if I'm in the wrong area, but I wasn't sure where to put it.
I have a shrimp tank I am setting up again. The filter is a Zoo Med Nano 10. It came with its own ceramic media (I think- its been a while). The media itself is smaller than the stuff I just bought, which looks HUGE in comparison. I didn't think to open the box and look...I saw the picture on the front and believed it...
Anyway, can I reuse the original ceramic rings? The tank just slowly died and I finally turned off the filter and it sat for months. Can it be cleaned/dried/whatever, or should I wait and purchase new rings online somewhere? I'm anxious to get it up and running but I don't want to be creating a death trap!
