Typically leaving the new filter media in an established tank for a few weeks for the bacteria to colonize on it.

If you are replacing the filter and room permits in the new one, you can just take the old media and put it in the new filter with the new media. This will allow you to keep all of the bacteria and start the new filter immediately without a crash.

Hope this helps.

Happy Holidays!
