View Full Version : EcoSystem hang on back wet/dry question

12/25/2008, 10:38 AM
I'm interested in http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=18372

With this system comes Micacle Mud. I'm a little confused about the Miracle Mud, my tank is set up for over a year and id like to add a regugium complete with light, pump etc. This item seems perfect but the Miracle Mud directions says to cycle for 6-8 weeks, does that mean I can't add it to the refugium that will hang on my existing tank because it will cause a cycle?

Thanks :)

Thank you for your post. The EcoSystem Hang on Back Wet/Dry System should not cause your tank to re-cycle. It will take time for the beneficial bacteria to colonize in the EcoSystem. We would recommend keeping your existing filtration running in conjunction with the EcoSystem for 6-8 weeks before adding any additional live stock to the tank.
