Need to make emergency new tank for breeding Apisto Borelli
My apistogramma borelli bred last night. I always thought the female was a sleeper male cause she never seemed to show interest in the male but I guess that wasn't the case. I am super happy and want to grow them out and give them their own space to take care of the babies.
SO, I'd like to spend the rest of the day setting up a 10 gallon for them. My main question is this: How can I use the filtration from my cannister filter to instantly cycle my new tank? I have a well-established 55 gallon with a cannister filter. What is my best bet if I want to somehow use my 55 gallons filtration media to instantly cycle this 10 gallon?
Also I would like any tips of course. So far gonna be really simple, low-tech blackwater tank with a few plants here and there. They bred on a java moss rock so that will be going with them.
Let me know!
