setting up a 20G

gonna be setting my 20G back up. new gravel. same heater and 150 biowheel. no live plants this time. i was gonna set it up for a week before adding my fish. is this a decent amount of time before adding a few tigers and a cory? should i wait longer?

and is there a certain spot where i should put my filter? back? (left right middle) or on one of the sides?

women want me, fish fear me

I would give it at least two weeks, maybe three. Of course, a fully cycled tank would take over a month...

Are you using fishless cycling? If so, use pure ammonia, not the fish. If you want to use fish, use some danios or male platies. The fish you mentioned are hardly tolerant of ammonia and nitrites.

I'd rather place it at the back.:)

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.
