I have an established tank without a filter, but I have an eheim 2213 in the mail and I was wondering how long I should run it before adding more livestock. I currently have 3 ottos and 2 amano shrimp and am planning on adding 12 ember tetras and 8 more amanos. How long after setting up the filter could I add them? Oh btw, my tank is a 20high.
Thanks,
Scouter

Since your tank is already well established then no waiting will be needed. What ever good bacteria that is in the tank will help seed the filter.
