    These are stacking type cartridges?

    If she wanted to seed additional bio media to put into her U3 (on the uncycled tank) couldn't she hang a bag of bio media in the cichlid tank to start it seeding?

    This cartridge goes in the middle compartment with sponge filters on either side of it.

    There is a sponge filter and multi-stage filter in the cichlid tank as well. The multi-stage filter has loose biomedia on one side and sponge on the other. It as not as easily accessible as the u4. I would have to take the entire multi-stage filter out of the tank to take out any media. With the u4 I only need to lift the lid on top and take out the center cartridge.

    I am still confused as to whether or not I can or should move any biomedia.

    Sponge filter, multi-stage filter and fluval u4 filter in the cichlid tank. Tank completed cycle August 8th and cichlids added on the 9th.
    Jungle tank has a fluval u3 filter. Ammonia is stuck at 2 ppm. No signs of any Nitrates or Nitrates in the 2 weeks since I started the cycle.
    The multi-stage filter will eventually be moved from the cichlid tank to the jungle tank. The u4 was added to the cichlid tank on July 31st and I am waiting for it to become fully seeded before moving the multi-stage filter.

    I would wait, TBH...2 weeks into a fishless cycle is nothing, mine took 5 weeks

    If it would make you feel better, though, move a small handful of ceramic media
