So I just picked up another tank last night with a penguin 350 bio wheel filter. Gonna set it up tonight and was wondering if I have a penguin 200 running right now on a 10g w a sponge filter besides would taking the seeded bio wheel from the 200 n putting it on the new one be better than robbing the sponge filter that is only rated for a 10g to help cycle the tank? The new tank is a 26g bow front.

Just not sure if them wheels actually hold the amount of bacteria they claim or if a sponge would be quicker.

And as always thanks for any input.[/url]
It's a wash. Either should be just as effective unless the sponge is really gunked up to the point that little water is actually flowing through it, or is channeling thorugh it.
