Seeding bacteria

Recommended Posts

I am picking up a 6ft tank tomorrow and will be setting it up in the few weeks (still need a few more bits). At the moment I have a 3ft with a sump with some bio balls and matrix in it and was hoping to use the matrix to seed bacteria to the new 6ft. The 3ft though has a possible case of fluke and has snails and was wondering if I was to use the matrix from this tank would it carry over this crap to the new tank?

snails will b in the media and will infest ya new tank

i had that problem loaches couldn't eat the sods fast enuff

so i ended up taking all the gravel out and all filter media and soaking it all in bleach for a few days the bought a bottle of cycle and used that to get it all up n running again

yes it was a drastic measure there were them horrible cone snails and i had millions of them i tried pickeing them out of the gravel bucket by bucket it just took too long and was ineffective
