i have an established 10 gal
and an empty 10 gal
with all the trimmings just laying around and i want to "jump start" the new 10 gal
by running the new filter in the established tank. how long should i run it for? i figure there is no such thing as too long, but how long should i wait. i figure that it will be about 5 days until i'm ready to fil the empty 10 gal
, but is that too short?
i was planning on only adding a couple fish to the new 10 gal
. i was thinking a betta and a couple other smaller fish, maybe bottom feeders (any suggestions), so i wouldn't overload the bacteria that will only be established in the filter.
