I have a newly setup 10 gal tank with two boys (pics in the picture section). It has a filter and will have a heater as soon as it's needed (right now it's at a toasty 80 degrees). I diverted the water flow in the filter section based on instructions from one of Neenjar's posts and as a result I am getting decent water flow in the section without the filter as well. I want to cycle this tank however I don't want this process to hurt my boys. So here is what I am planning to do, and please shout if it doesn't sound right. I will do weekly 50% water changes, while monitoring ammonia/nitrites every day. Plus i am using filter media from my established 30 gal. I should have really done fishless cycling but thought I could bypass all that by using stuff from my 30 gal. What have people done with cycled tanks? I think I read somewhere that even with such heavy water changes the tank will still cycle but it will take months instead of weeks. What do you think?
