      I'm setting up a 55 gallon goldfish tank for black moors since they're my favorite but the room the tan is in isn't ready. This weekend we will finish painting and once that happens I'm planning to have the cascade 1000 I have for the 55 go onto my heavily stocked 75 gallon for a month so it can get the necessary bacteria without having to go through a normal cycle.
      Do yall think that with this process I could put the cascade onto the 55 and have it instantly cycled?

      I did this with one more step. I have AC110'S on my Oscar tank. Each has 2 of the normal bags of the bio rings in them. I took one of these bags and dumped it into the FX4. Its been running on my Oscar's tank as well for a month.
      Running on the tank should get it going, but to be safe try and add some seasoned bio rings into the new filter to help it along further.

      Ok, it should help that the only occupants are going to be 3 black moors, unless I find a bottom feeder that can work with them....

      Oh and by the way do you think I could put in the 3 black moors once I switch the canister over?

      Do one black moor at a time, you could also add a golden dojo loach or a stoneroller as another bottomfeeder

      Black moor get pretty big. Not sure how long it takes, but at a recent auction I saw one that was the size of a small watermelon, or large cantelope. Beautiful creature. Even with seeding the filter, its give it 48 hours to multiply bacteria a bit in the tank if they're bigger than say 2 inches. They're pretty messy, and you don't want a huge ammonia spike from that. Thats just my 2 cents though. It's what I'd do.
