Seeding new filter with cycled media?

4 posts in this topic

Im getting a AC 70 tommorow and I have on my 40 breeder two bags of ceramic rings, one has been in there for quite some time. Can I take that out and place it in my new filter without disturbing my cycle on my 40 breeder?

Is the 70 going on the 40 breeder?

If so it should be ok. Maybe just a minor bump.

No, the 70 is going on a 29 gallon tank. I'm just going to take out one bag. I have 2 aquaclear 50s running on my 40 breeder. I also use TSS to jump start the cycle.

It will most likely cause a cycle bump. Test ammonia and nitrite daily.
