You are good to go man. The new filters will seed in about a week and then you can slowly start to remove the hydros.

should have more than enough air, had to dial them down a bit so they didn't bubble up through the tops, cool, 3 tanks down and only 3 more to go then :)

I would think.

The ATI hydro 4 sponges are each rated for 80 gallons. you have 3 so thats 240 gallons in theory. But is it really the size of the sponge that mmakes all the difference or is it the size of the air pump you are using.

The larger airpump will pull more water through the sponge which will be more beneficial and help with the bacteria.

just got my basement floor all put back together again and trying to reset up my tanks down there, have a 135 that I have a ehiem 2028 which probably has lost it's bio seed and a ac70 which also probably has lost it's bio seed but have 3 hydro 4 sponge filters which are well seeded from other tanks in there, will that be enough to hold the bio for a small load of fish till the eheim and ac 70 catch up again?
