Moved fish to bigger tank tank....How long to add fish?
I moved 8 month old 3 gallon bowl Betta into a 6+ gallon cube. I added 2" of ecocomplete before the move. I used all of the water from the previous tank and seeded the tank by adding a small handful of the old substrate (small pebble Tetra substrate) to one of the corners of the tank? I also put a large handful of some of the old pebble substrate into two media bags and hung one in the main and one in the back compartment. I added the Beta after 24 hours.
How long until it has cycled enough to add new fish, ghost or amano shrimp and Nerite snail? When can I remove the media bags of old gravel or the gravel from the corner of the tank?
Should I avoid adding shrimp, nerite and a few small (1" shrimp) at the same time?
