HI everyone,

I just brought a new small tank and filter to make up a convict tank, the filter is a fluval 2+ internal which just has the 2 foam pads, I have stuck these in one of my fluval 205 to seed some of the bacterira onto them.

How long would you say is is long enough so i wouldnt have to cycle the new tank?

Thanks

4 weeks would be my minimum, 6 is better. To speed things up and know for sure, do the opposite. Take some media from the established filter and add it to the new. Then fishless cycle. You could be cycled in 7-10 days or so and know for sure it was safe for the fish.
