Hey everyone,

I've had a small filter (rated for up to 20 gallons I believe) running in my 75 gallon for about 1 week and a half so that I can run it in my 10 gallon to use as a hospital tank. I did this because I noticed a couple of fish not doing so well and want to transfer them to hopefully bring them back to recovery. Does this sound like enough time for a filter of that size to grow the bacteria needed to break down the fish waste or should I wait longer and if so, how much longer?

I feel like I may have asked this question before, so I apologize if I in fact already did.

Thank you!
