Hi All,

Apologies if this is not in the correct topic;

I’ve recently purchased the Fluval Spec with Marine Upgrade (literally just the lighting that’s different) and have a question on filtration.

The tank has been set up for four days now and all tests look fine...I current have the standard filtration set up in chamber two because the bio media I ordered didn’t arrive when it should have and now won’t be here until Tuesday. My question, is once it does arrive would you recommend I essentially start the nitrogen cycle from scratch again, as removing the current media may remove some beneficial bacteria?

Thanks in advance.

How's your tank currently looking?
