It's not bad to do a 100% water change in an uncycled tank, but in a 10+ gallon tank it is a lot of work, as you cannot just pick up the tank and dump it.. (a filled 10 gallon weighs about 100 lbs)

yeah, I was thinking perhaps I'd take some of the water out first with a bucket...I'm still really confused about cycling.
I might try it once I get a filter though.

Cycling might be confusing but you've got a lot of support on this forum. There are a lot of people who will walk you through every step of the way.
