Will A Tank Stay Cycled With Just An Airstone?

    My filter stopped working today. Luckily the tank it's on is empty — I've just been dosing ammonia to keep it cycled until I can get fish. I'm going to try to get the filter replaced (I think it's still under warranty) but that may take a while.

    I've put the filter media in the tank for now, with an airstone next to it. Will this be enough to keep it cycled?

    Yes. Try putting the media above the airstone to increase flow and keep dosing the ammonia.
