Alright guys for all you that have been helping me out thanks again here is another one for you.

My angelfish tank is fully cycled, i put a Sponge filter in their to soak up some bacteria.

Question: How long will the sponge filter need to be running in that tank for it to get the good bacteria in it? (so it can be placed into another tank as a seed)


Thanks!x

I let sponge filter sit at least two weeks in healthy tank. That's what I consider the minimum time. I keep extra media stuffed in most of my filters for any emergency. I doubt it will be fully seeded in three to five days.

Alright that sounds better , i didn't think it grew that fast. If it did the cycle would be over in days.

Thanks!
