to kind of elaborate on a few other threads without changing the op's topics, i would like to ask a question. if im getting ready to cycle a new tank, can i use a ball of used filter floss from an established filter to jump start the cycling?

the new tank is much larger and will have an ac110 and an eheim 2217, so none of the sponges etc from my current ac50 will fit. i want to jump start my new cycling tank so can i do this with some used filter floss? would it help? also, could i take some of the biological media out of the established filter and throw it in with the new bio media in my new ac110 and or 2217? i wanna get my baby sevs out of the 29 and in to the 75 asap.

thanks.

good deal. if im using old media in my new filter/tank, how long should the cycle take? i know 6 weeks is normal, but about how much do you think this will jump start it?
