Upgrading to a new filter, a few ?'s
Alright, I purchased an Eheim Classic 2217 for my 65 gallon today. Should be here next week sometime. I am currently fully cycled and have 2 bio wheels running. How long should I leave the bio wheels running with the canister to avoid losing all my bacteria? Would putting some type of bacteria starter help? I used the ATM Colony on my old tank and I feel like it helped speed things up.
