sorry i couldnt find a straight answer after hour of searching. i have 2 fw
tanks that are good to go and fishless cycling a sw
. can i pull the filter from a fw
tank and shake or lay it in a sw
tank to seed it and then put it back in the fw
? Also, ive only been cycling the tank for 3 days ( i know i still got 5 weeks till i can put anything alive in it) but how long should i expect until i start to see algae growing in it so i know when i should start thinking about my clean up crew?
