Establishing a new canister filter?
40gl tank up & running very well for 3mos. Heavily planted, 50% weekly W/C, moderately stocked, no algae problems. Filtration is a HOB & a power sponge.
Last night, I added a canister and removed the power sponge. I was thinking I'd leave the HOB run for a week before I remove it. I believe I should have a strong enough bacterial colony in the new canister by then.
Am I being too optimistic???
