Sorry, I should have been more clear - what I meant was that I change the 
filter wool frequently so that the tank eco-system isn't relying on bacteria 
growing in it; I wasn't meaning the previously ditched carbon filter cartridge 
at all - it does have a fibre layer, which I guess could host some
