I"m sure that we are all open to new concepts, and seemingly not what we have been told... but yes you can successfuly cycle a one or less gal tank. The bacteria is only limited by the media surface areas and the o2 exchange and food..so if you provide a type of media that has a vast amount of areas for the bb to grow in and on and provide the required surface air/gas exchange and don't exceed the bio load... I'ts all a matter of balances. I don't advocate the use of drinking glass as fish tank...ever... the nerd in me has spoken, I am skulking back to my dark little corner now...that is all.

I agree with 1 gal cycle but I disagree with less.
