Hey everyone. I am gonna be switching the filter on my 10 gal fw
setup. I currently have a HOB
that is made for a maximum of 10 gal
(it came in a box with the tank.) I am wanting to switch to a bio wheel setup. Any suggestions? I am thinking something that will handle, say, 30 gal
even though I only have a 10 gal
What you think?
Another big thing is what should I do BEFORE switching out the filters? I am imagining I will have another cycle since the new filter will not have any biological filtration. Can I run this filter in a bucket for 2-3 weeks with something to help set-up some biological "friends" on the bio wheel? Should I run both filters on the tank for a while to do this? Or should I just sya my fish-friends are in for a couple weeks of hell on their gills (I REALLY don't like this option.)
Throw some ideas at me if you would
