bb=beneficial bacteria (what keeps your tank stable and healthy for your fish)
and that sounds like a plan. i just bought a powerhead as well to deal with a little dead spot and help with the circulation of water.

Ah I got ya, I also got 2 big pieces of mature filter media from my pet shop that I'll be ordering all my fish from so hopefully It will be okay to order at least 7 corys by April 1st (started on feb 25th). I'm in the nitrite and nitrate spike period little to no ammonia.
I also got some plants which as expected my koi is messing with; not eating just kind of like sucking on I dunno maybe cleaning algae off em I hope. Watch I wake up 2morrow with shredded plants lol.
