So here is the low down...
I am upgrading my tank up from a 30G to a 72G. I will be using all new substrate and aquascape in the new tank.
In my old tank I have an Eheim 2213 Canister (116G /hr) and I have purchased an Eheim Professional 2224 canister (185G/hr) as well for the big tank. I plan to use both filters in the new tank so that i turn over the tank a little over 4 times per hour.
I also have a phosphate reactor that I will be using to remove phosphate as well as run some carbon or other chemical media as needed.
The smaller canister is well established, the larger canister has been running in the old tank for about three weeks or so.
My new tank should arrive later this week so I plan to fill it and get it going as soon as it gets here and move the larger canister filter over to it immediately. The trick is allowing the tank to cycle as well as providing enough ammonia for the partially established filter to keep going.
Do I dare let the tank run for a few days while using some sort of biological additive and try for a quick cycle? (also could you please recommend your favorite kind of additive, I have not had good luck with the product "Cycle" by Hagen)
What do you all think would be the best plan of attack? :P
