Removing filter media slowly

I added a sump to my tank. I took the biomax out of my canister filter, and put it in the sump. How slowly should I remove it from the system all together? A 1/4 of it a day? Less? Thanks.

How long has your tank been up? How much rock do you have?

If you have a test kit you can keep an eye out for an ammonia spike.

Slower would be better. Nothing good ever happens fast.

Tanks is 7 months old. 72 gallon, 80 lbs of live rock. I was thinking of taking a little out every other day. I tested the water today, and everything is normal.
