I am setting up a new aquarium (20 gal). I plan to expedite the cycling by first setting up a sponge filter in my well-established community, letting it run, then transferring it to the new tank. For those who have experience with doing this:
1) How long should I run it in established tank prior to transferring to new tank?
2) How long after the transfer would you guess it would take for the new tank to finish cycling, say if I dose with ammonia?
