Filter for 55 gallons
So, I have a 55 gallon tank. Axolotls, like bettas, like still water and don't like strong currents. In fact some would argue they are even more stressed out by the currents than bettas!
Now, I'd like to have a community axie gang in the 55 gallon. But these guys are really sensitive to water quality, so I'd like to get the tank cycled.
Anyone have any ideas on a filter that could just be there to cycle but not cause much disturbance for them? Cycling a 5 gallon tank with the filter it came with was easy, I'd just like a little advice to be sure I can get this big old 55 cycled without stressing them out. Is it safe to put in a filter meant for a smaller tank in a large tank, or could that put too much pressure on the filter? Can a smaller tank's filter properly cycle a larger tank?
