Subject: too much filtration?
It may work better to rinse out the cycled 40gal filter in the 120 gal
tank. I do this with sponge filters with great success . It may also
help to take water from the old tank and put it in the new one, or you
can plant the tank heavily to start with. I have noticed that warmer
tanks seem to cycle faster. I do all of these and At least one of these
If It is a heavily plant tank the filters and plants maybe competing for
I've got a couple of questions I hope you don't mind reading:
1) I've purchased a new fluval 303 and an eheim 2213 to use
on a 120gallon that hasn't been setup yet. I'm wondering if
anything wrong with adding those two new filters to an existing
tank that's been up for about 7 months (with adequate
filtration)? Is there
such thing as too much filtration (for the 40gallon tank)? I'm
to skip as much of the break-in period for my new tank. And
would this idea
2) I'd like to get the Glossostigma to grow close to the ground.
that this requires a lot of light. Does anyone have any
guidelines as to
how much would be needed? More than 3w/gallon?
