Sponge Filter, How Long?

Hi guys, I'm planning on picking up two clowns this weekend. I have had my sponge filter in my sump since last Saturday. Is that long enough time to get enough bacteria to maintain my quarantine tank for three weeks?

Thanks,
Rogelio

A week should be enough to get a decent amount of bacteria over to the QT. It really depends on how big the QT and filter being used are. Keep in mind you should still monitor the water quality and be prepared with aged SW if needed.

Cheers
Steve

It's a 10gal tank and a sponge rated for a 10-20 gallon tank.
Cool thanks for the info.
