Re: Why can't I prime my new canister filter? #11
There's no set timescale as each tank is different, but typically it takes 2-3 weeks for nitrite to appear :)

Re: Why can't I prime my new canister filter? #12
Can't help with the cycling aspects but just wanted to say I had to do this exact same thing just yesterday setting up a new filter.

Thank fully I had wine on hand to gargle with and wash my mouth out lol.
