I put a new canister filter on my 45 gal 2 weeks ago and have been running the old HOB filter along with it. At what point can I remove the HOB?

I just did the same thing yesterday and I'm going to keep my hob on for maybe a week. did you add any media from the old filter to the new filter? I imagine that'd help but either way 2 weeks seems like more than long enough

I did float some sponges in the old filter for a few days and then transfer them to the new one, not sure if that did anything or not.
