No, you cannot just wash your fish tank filter. Filters need to be replaced at least every 6 months, and more often if the water quality is poor.
Filter media can be used for a short or long period of time without killing bacteria. The length of time will depend on the type of filter media and the amount of bacteria present. Generally, if the filter media is replaced every few months, the bacteria will be killed and the filter will need to be replaced.
There are a few ways to change the filter media without losing bacteria. One way is to pour boiling water over the old filter media and let it cool before discarding. Another way is to immerse the new filter media in a solution of 1 part bleach to 9 parts water for 30 minutes, then discard.
There are a few ways to increase good bacteria in your fish tank. One option is to add live plants to the tank. These plants will provide a place for the good bacteria to live and multiply. Another option is to add a filter that removes particles and toxins from the water. This will help to increase the number of good bacteria in the tank.
Fish can survive for a short period of time without a filter, but they will suffer from increased water turbidity and decreased water quality.
Good bacteria will grow in a fish tank within a few hours if the water is clean.

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the best way to make fish oxygen depends on the type of fish and how it is being oxygenated. However, some methods that have been used to oxygenate fish include placing them in a sealed container with fresh air, using a bubbling device, or immersing them in ice water.
Fish can survive for a short period of time without oxygen pumps, but they will eventually die.
The most low maintenance fish is a betta fish. They do not require any water changes, and they are easy to care for.
