How do you clean a fish tank filter?

That depends on the kind of filter you have. The best filter you can get is a power filter with compartments for different filter media. With one of these you can easily clean out one media at a time thus keeping the cycled bacteria in there. The worst filter of the lot which IMO should never be used, is an undergravel filter because it can not be serviced or cleaned at all. A filter should only be cleaned when the water flow is badly reduced. Only replace some of the media and only rinse loose rubbish off what you keep. The reason for this is to preserve the good Ammonia and Nitrite removing bacteria that have formed in the filter.

What happens if your timing belt is lose?

Timing belts only get loose if the tensioner is broken. If that happens the belt will slip and your engine will be out of time. It will either not run at all or run very badly. On an interference engine you could have internal engine damage.
