Seasoning a sponge filter

Hi, all. For the sponge filter in my spawning tank, how long should I put it in an existing, cycled tank until I can consider it "seasoned" well enough to start the spawn tank with? Can I then just consider the spawn tank safe right away? And does it need to be running in the existing tank, or can it just sit there?

Since you will need lots of water changes, I don't think you should consider the tank cycled or hope for it. Constant new water will destroy what ever cycle you had. So I think it's safe to say that you could use the filter anytime it's needed. . . . unless you are using 50g+ for only a handful of fry - that won't need that much water changes.
