@Rhonda moving plants over will help kick start the system. If your tank has a sponge filter or maybe a sponge in a hob filter, just get some mulmy water off that as if you were cleaning it and add that water to the tank. But honestly moving some plants will be enough. Just be patient with adding livestock and don’t overload the system prematurely.

Good to know. I have a canister filter now and my new tank has the filter built in.  I could move the ceramic pieces and bio balls over to start it off.  You’ve given me some good ideas- thanks!
