I'm going to give a mate an old tank with the works (heaters, filters etc) but i need to establish the filters im going to give him first.

Game plan is to wack it all in my tank first, then give him my water so its up and running and don't need to go though the cycle.

My question is how long do i wait so the filters will run by themselves in the new tank? I know that there isn't an exact amswer so im chasing more of days/weeks type of numbers.

Thanks

Best to put some of your established media in the cannister and then continue to run on your tank for as long as possible. As long as he doesnt overstock and adds his fish slowly then the established media should be able to hold the bioload while the other media becomes established if that makes sense
