How do you preserve a Penguin Bio-Wheel?

by Zambize4899

I have replaced this filter with a different one, but I will no doubt use this one some time sooner than later. I'd like to preserve the Bio-Wheel because it has at least 4 months of maturity. How can I do this? Right now I just left the wheel itself floating in the tank.

I wouldn't leave the wheel floating in a tank that has fish or waste in it.... biowheels usually only receive filtered water, and don't get gunk in them which makes them stiiiiiink!!!!!

unless your gonna use it pretty quickly [a week or so] i would just trash the wheel, clean and dry the filter good and save it for another day...............if you are gonna use it, leave it run in the exsisting tank [might have to run it on the front or something {i know, ugly} but that about it - -Z is right, the wheel will get all nasty in a few days and then you got more trouble than its worth for sure
