Probably another silly thought of mine.
After Xmas I'm starting my new tank cycling, don't ask Xmas tree take preference by my wife.
I was wondering if I was to have a clip on filter attached to my present small tank running alongside the normal filter, and when it came time to start the cycling of my next tank, if I used the clip on filter would it help with the start up cycle as it will have already gained bacteria from my small tank.
I was thinking of an a600 aquaclear 30.
Hope that made sense.
Also I intend to transfer the fish from my small tank into the bigger tank once cycled.
While I'm on this subject what does HOB stand for.
