Almost two weeks ago I purchased two new aquariums, the 20g was running for a week and the filter stopped working, I took it apart, cleaned it out, put it back together and it still wouldn't work, so I made a trip to Walmart to purchase another I did take the plastic bio filter from the old one and put it in the new one, I also got a bigger one than what came in the kit. Yesterday I ordered an aquaclear 10-30 it'll will be here next week, my question is what should I do to set up the new aquaclear? I know my tank hasn't cycled yet, (I have test strips, my api master test kit is coming in the mail with my aqua clear) I have a betta, 4 guppies and two kuli loaches. When I get the new filter should I use the tetra safe start again? I'm not really worried about the guppies and betta, just the loaches, I don't want the amonia spike to kill them any suggestions?
