So yesterday I came home to my 10 gallon, two-month old planted tank leaking from the bottom. After putting the fish and shrimp in a 5 gallon bucket with the filter and heater, I found a used 50 gallon acrylic hex tank and stand with a new Aqueon Flow 50 LED Pro filter for $70 (a big upgrade, I know!) So obviously I want to get the new tank cycled as quickly as possible. I have the damp substrate from the old tank still and as much of the water as I could save as well. Since I'm using the filter on the bucket, I can't use it to help cycle the new tank. Any other suggestions? I currently have 6 CPDs, 2 Threadfin Rainbowfish, and some Cherry and Amano shrimp.
