I've got a 5 gallon tank set up with an internal filter that was running alongside a HOB filter in my cycled 10 gallon for about 3 days. (I can get take some stuff from the 10 gallon filter and add to the 5 gallon filter if needed.) I also have gravel from the 10 gallon in the cup a betta came in and in a net sitting near the filter intake. I moved all of this over today. I know that for a tank to be cycled, the parameters have to be a certain amount, but what should I be looking for in a tank that has been seeded from a cycled tank.
Will the parameters just fall into place? Will I have to feed the BB in the new tank with something? there aren't any fish in it yet.
