Someone please help me!

I want to cycle my tank to get ready for my breeding tank. Is it even worth it to cycle a breeding tank since there's only 5 inches of water? My fish seemed fine in all the tanks ive put him in so far. I want to get ready for my breeding but I don't have money to spend on 40 dollar test kits.

Usually you don't have to worry about establishing the nitrogen cycle in the spawning tank due to all the water changes you will be making once you have fry...also, usually you don't use filters in spawning tanks because they can disrupt the bubble nest and without a filter and oxygenated water flow you can't get the nitrogen cycle to establish, however, some breeders will use a low flow mature sponge filter with a gang valve....spawning varies from one breeder to another and you have to find out what works best for you with experience......
