I am going to start my 125 g tank back up. I have a 10 gallon that has been running for years. I’ve got two bags of ceramic rings from my new filter that have been in the 10 gallon for over three weeks. My plan is to use the filter media that is in the 10 gallon as well as the ceramic rings that are in the 10g. I will only be starting the 125 g with a few small native fish. Also I plan to have some low tech plants in as well. I am assuming that a month in the 10 g is enough time to get BB on the ceramic rings. I’m hoping that the rings, the filter media, and live plants will be enough to handle four or five natives that are only a couple inches each. I will also have some safe start on hand to help boost things if I need too. The 10 gallon does not have a huge bio load. Thoughts on my plans??
