Hello all! I recently picked up some more bio rings and bags. I've loaded up the backs and dropped them in the back of several HOB filters on my tanks, I planned on just leaving them there but i had a question. How long will it take this new media to get enough of the bacteria on it so say if I needed to use a new filter or start a new tank I could transfer the bag of media to the new tank and have insta cycle?

About 2 months, if you would mix the new rings with your mature rings (if you have any) they should be good in about a month

Thanks for the info!
Thor's tank has a canister filter full of cycled rings, I ju don't think I wanna pop that open to mix in a bag with a hand full of rings. So I'll just drop em in the hob filter and wait a few months. Thanks for posting!
