you should put it in, even if you have a bio-wheel. it allows for more area for the good bacteria to grow

There's a lot of misinformation out there, unfortunately. And before we started using FishLore, we followed quite a few of those. Now, when i come across a new idea, i like to run it by the FishLore community and see what the experienced fish owners say. Another thing that can help speed up your cycle is to make the water as warm as you can and be sure to feed it every 12 hours through the whole process. Best of luck with it.
