seeding a new tank with established tank stuff
have a new 75 gal tank and an established 30 gal tank in process of cycling the new tank before moving the fish to there new home.old tank has a fluval 205 new tank has a fluval 405 i took some gravel from the 30 gal tank and put it in one of the baskets in the 405 then i took 2 of the 4 sponges from the 205 and cut them into peices and place it on top of the bio max in the 405 then i took half the biomax from the 205ad added it to the 405 so i assume im seeding this new filter well. as for the 75 gal tank the water temp is set at 85 cause i heard bacteria grow faster at warmer temps and i have added ammonia to the water to get the ppm to 4 or 5 the ammonia is pure no surfacants or perfume or scent no bubbles when shook its been a week now and the ammonia is still the samelevel as day one any ideas???
