This is what I found on the Canon web-site. You will see from the description of each cartridge that the only one that will allow you replace the tanks separately is the
BC-21e cartridge. If you have any other cartridge, you must replace the entire cartridge. Hope this helps.


BC-21e Color BJ Cartridge   $52.99
Use the BC-21e cartridge/BCI-21 tanks for printing color documents. The BC-21e contains the print head unit and two replaceable BJ tanks - the BCI-21 color BJ tank and the BCI-21 Black BJ tank. When you run out of ink, you can replace either tank without replacing the cartridge

BC-22e Photo BJ Cartridge   $46.99
Use the BC-22e Photo BJ cartridge for photo printing projects. When you run out of ink, replace the entire cartridge.

BC-23 Black BJ Cartridge   $36.99
Use the BC-23 cartridge for high-speed, black only printing. When you run out of ink, replace the complete cartridge.
