Filter Cartridge

filter cartridge.?

im setting up a tank right now and it has a 20-40 gallon filter and its a 29 gallon tank.

i want to know if i can take the old filter media out of a smaller 5-15 gallon filter on my established 10 gallon tank and just put in it even though it wont take up the entire inside of the cartrige holder inside the filter?
will this hurt my filter or make it like overfill and make water go everywhere, or will it help me get bacteria in my new tank?

thanks

Sure you can. In fact as you must be thinking it's a great way to get the good bacteria you need into your new tank more quickly. Better though would be to cut a few small peices of your old cartridge and place them inside the new cartridge, assuming you can open the cartridges or course. This will seed your new tank very quickly and really reduce ammonia and nitrite build up while also seeding your new filter media.
