Kinds similar to the other post. But a little different.

I just started cycling a 55gal tank. I pulled 2 whisper 60's from another tank that was already cycled and they still have all of there filters sponges and media in them. How will this affect my cycling? Will it speed it up?


thanks

Your old filters will help a little, maybe take off a couple weeks, but you'll still need a lot of bunch plants to eat up the ammonia. Cabomba purple is really nice, cheap and it grows fast. Hornwort is excellent also.

Leave a small amount of the plant debris in the bottom of your tank. Bacteria will take off, but your ammonia might also spike so keep an eye on it.
