Hello! I have been stuffing a large amount of filter media into my betta tank, because the filters it came with was very scant, so I have about 4 strips of filter in there now. My tank is completely cycled and has been for some time, but I was just wondering, how long does it take for the bacteria to attach to the other filter pads, as I have put them in periodically over the past year. Does it take a month, a week, a day? I have no idea so I was wondering if anybody has some insight on this.
