Seeding Filter Cartridge

Hello All,
I've had to replace my filter recently so I've been using the old filter Cartridge to seed the new Cartridge. My questing is, how long do I need to seed it for?

I think have been seeding it for about a month now.

thank you

My suggestion take out the old one, test your water a couple hours later if the parameters are good you should be fine. I always test a few days in a row just to be on the safe side whenever I do anything with filter media. A month should be more than enough time.
