Re: How long do I leave the UGF?
I recently got a canister filter that is a bit oversized for my tank (a
Fluval 304 for a 38 gallon tank). I did this to replace my UGF. I got a
larger canister because I am trying to plan ahead. I can see already that my
tank is to small for all I would like to do. I want the canister filter to
fit the NEXT tank I get.
My question is this. How long do I leave the UGF in place? Between the new
canister filter and the powerhead on the UGF, there is more flow than the
fish probably want. I figured I needed to leave the UGF in place until good
bacteria is well established in the canister filter. Would a month do it, or
should I wait longer? I am running the canister filter with the materials
that came with it -- plus some floss. The water is much clearer than it ever
was with the UGF, an obvious difference.
Thanks for your advice,
