Quick Cycle in 6.5g Tank
I'm thinking of cycling my 6.5g tank, hasn't been used in 5yrs, was the tiny thing my poor goldfish had been living in when I took him on.
I'm just wondering about the fastest cycling method as have only really dealt with bigger tanks and haven't cycled a tank in about 6yrs! This tank will be tropical for my 2 M or 3 F Mystery snails.
My goldie obviously makes a lot of mess, he's in a tank that was cycled 6yrs ago, my tropical tank has been cycled 8.
They both have fairly simple sponge filters, 4 in the tropical and 3 in the goldies but he also has a v simple and tiny Fluval filter and pump in there (which came in his original tank) which has one sponge filter and I cover it in pps. Still has quite a good flow.
I'm wondering if using his small Fluval filter will be enough to help cycle? Or if it's better to buy a new one and use some of my (rather old) filter sponges?
Thanks for any help.
Got to add they're Juwel tanks if anyone's familiar with them. Am in U.K. and think pretty popular over here.
