I did most the cycling on my 10gal w/ a HOB
filter. Then I started to cycle my 5.5gal tank & decided to give an intank filter a try. I really liked the intank filter & decided to buy another one to put on my 10gal.
1. How long should I run the intank filter on the 10gal before removing the HOB
? It's been a little over a week now. I just don't want to mess up my tank.
2. How do you guys keep filter floss *down* in your intank filters? I've noticed the floss in both filters tends to move up & reallllyyyyy slows down the out flow. Was thinking about finding a rock to put ontop that might weigh them down? I'm not as worried about the 10gal since it's to be planted & house bettas, but the 5.5gal will house puffers in the future so they are going to need better movement.
