EEEK!! 1 to 2 weeks!! I don't really have the room for both filters on my tank ( . . . begins to wonder if the Emperor 400 was a mistake . . .)
I guess if I think about it, there is room . . . it will just be a bit crouded for a few weeks.
What if I poured some of that Bio-Spira right onto the bio wheels once I get it up and running . . . would that speed things up?
Thanks for the advice
