  • Additional filtration/switching to Matrix

    Aloha,

    I’m going to add a new HOB filter (AquaClear 70) to my 55 gallon community tank but I’m going to replace the ceramic noodles and activated carbon it comes with with a small Purigen bag and Matrix (I will keep the sponge).

    How long will it take for this filter’s bacteria to get established? Shall I use Prime and Stability? If so for how long and how much? (Ammonia and Nitrate are at 0ppm now, PH is 6.6).

    When that happens I will take the noodles in the other filter and replace them with matrix (it already has a purigen bag and no activated carbon).

    How long will it take for the old filter to grow enough bacteria? Should I use Prime and Stability?

    Thanks,

    Ramón
