, just wondering if you guys know of any tips or tricks to setting up a 2nd tank, without going through a full cycle with the high anmonia and nitrate levels etc? I currently have a 50G planted freshwater tank thats been set up for nearly a year and everythings doing and looking great. But i'm starting to want a 2nd tank that I can use to use to house some of my swordtails as the population begins to rise (2 pregnant females in less then a week since if gotten them
) lol. So i was just wondering if a transfered some of my subtrate from my 50G tank or some of the decorations, would that make this stabalize a little faster?
Thanks in Advance!
