How long to keep the new filter and old running
So I just set up my new 55 gallon tank and am using the old 29 gallon filter that I had running on that tank. I have set up both the 29 and the 55 filters running at the same time. When should it be safe for me to remove the 29 gallon and not have to worry about the bacteria and such in the new filter? I used all the old decorations as well as some new. The 29 was up and running and fully cycled.
20 Gallon Planted Guppy tank. Amazon Sword, Dwarf Hairgrass, Cardinalis.
55 Gallon -1 BN Pleco, 1 High Fin Syndontis, 1 Oto, ~18 Kenyi Cichlids
Exactly. I'd just run both filters. In case one malfunctions, the other will still continue to work thus preventing water quality crash.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
