So my friend has been watching my fish while I was on vacation and I just came and got him. He's in a little bucket now while I'm getting the main tank running again so I don't have any old tank water to rinse off the media.

Can I still rinse them out with treated water? Also if I want to clean the entire thing would it be okay if I take out all the media and wash the filter with treated water and put everything back in, or would that be a shock to the cycle? (I have two aqueoun 55/75 filters on my 55gal tank)

 

Also there's pink on one of my white media I'm assuming it could be from the food???

You can rinse it all in treated water.

Yeah I would rinse all that in treated water, then I would dumb and clean the housing too. That is a pretty dirty filter :o
