After opening my canister filter to change the carbon and clean off the filter pads, I have successfully reconnected and primed the filter, turned it back on and all the gunk and bacteria that was inside the filter has now shot out into the tank. Can't even see the fish. is this normal? Did I do something wrong?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Will I think its normal, if you disturb the floss. I'm not sure why you wash the floss pads (know why I just us mine until they are clog 4 months) but if you do you loosen all that up and when you turn it back on it going to go somewhere. Next time, if it bother you to much, put the return line in a bucket first and then turn it on. Than finish up the WC.
