Rep: leanniexo is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Setting up this tank and am impatient

So I'm setting up a new tank for a future axolotl. I'm impatient when it comes to water cycling. The tank is currently a 20gal. Long. However I have a 20 gallon tank that has had 6 fish in it for 4 months. No obvious signs of disease or parasites as all my fish are healthy etc. My question is could I possibly add some water from that tank to my axolotl tank to speed up the process of getting some good bacteria in there?

Instead of adding the water use some decorations and/or filter media. Bacteria live on the surfaces rather than in the water so it will speed up the process :)
