    So uh, this is probably a silly question but I just want clarification. If I keep a bag of extra bio media in the water column in my tank, will it still work to colonise bb even if it's not inside a filter? So I can use for like future tanks etc.

    You can do that for few weeks to speed up cycle of new tank but it will not be cycled instantly for sure. And in long term bio media will get clogged up from poop, food...

    I tried that a long time ago just to see if it made it faster, but it didn’t seem to do anything.
