I added two bags of biomax rings to my cartridge filter and rinsed them before in the sink. I didnt think about it until after but is it possible that i killed some of my bacteris since i rinsed in the sink (chlorinated)? Hope not. The bags werent soaking wet or anything

Yeah your probably killed some, but bacteria is in the pores of the media so you should still have a lot left just as long as you didn't clean them with soap or rinse the hell out of them.

I would have to say that you probably killed quite a bit with the chlorinated water. The good news is that it's bacteria! It should multiply like crazy until you have a full colony again.

Cross your fingers, and keep an eye on your water parameters.
