    If your tank is cycled, how long does it take to seed alternative media?
    I'm just curious, bc my qt tank was okay for my first round of quarantine, but if I want to replace the filter media for that tank, how long would it take for bb to stick to the new filter cartridge after being in my main tank's filter?

    Thank you

    I was told it takes about a month. When I lost my cycle a few weeks ago I made sure to switch up my filter media so there were lots of bits I could borrow for the next time. So it actually saved me from having to wait the extra time to seed new media.

    Agree with Alliesten, I believe I have read a month, too.
