Hey folks, I realize i should know this by now, as i have been doing this for a while, but i'd like to make sure just in case - don't wanna kill any fish (I haven't had a death yet, and i'd like to keep it that way...)
So, i have a very small tank (10"x8"x8", with two ADF's and a few pygmy cories in it (ain't these lovely fish!) and i had a very small aqua 1 HOB filter on the back, however this had a tendancy to leak if not at exactly
the right angle, which is tricky with trains rumblind past 20yds from the front door and shaking the house! So i bought a fluval 1 which takes up a bit of space, but won't leak.
I put the fluval in about a week ago and have had the two running simultantiously for this time. I'm pretty sure that the new filter should be ok by now, but what with it being a tiny tank, and the fact that ADF's are apparantly very sensitive to ammonia i really don't a want mini cycle.
Thanks for helping, both in expectation of this time and in gratitude for previous occasions!
