I just placed two wads of poly fill in the filters of my 55 to seed a 20 gallon. How long do you think it will take for the polyfill to be ready to seed the new tank?
YOU! This is why I waited to start with the seeding until now! I have the tank and am antsy but not really in a rush. I can wait. It's more important to me to do it right. I won't be putting in more filter media for more tanks. Shame on you for suggesting itkimb said:Agree with above, 2 weeks at least. May I suggest that when you remove it for your new tank, put more into both the old and new filters...you never know when MTS will strike and you will need it again!
Alright, alright, you talked me into it.kimb said:That is what I said Beth......4 tanks ago! Seriously though, keeping it in there can come in handy no matter what. It just gives yet another surface for the colonies, perhaps might make them stronger, or if one or the other tank suffers a minI cycle, a filter goes down...its just some extra protection!
