And you could do a little sand from the 29 too.

It doesn't take much, bacteria divides exponentially, which means it can multiply amazingly fast.

Sand is a possibility as well I always figured it wouldn't be too tough to cycle this tank.. not with what I have and my track record of cycling tanks.. none of my tanks have taken more than about 2-3 weeks.. so hopefully this tank is one of the quicker tanks

my 55 gallon tank was cycled in about a week and a half! Lots of live sand and live rock helped speed the process.

From my understanding, you don't NEED it, but some people do a DSB in the fuge.

I have a hob fuge I made out of an AC 30 with small pieces or LR, cheato and a small submersible 10w light. I wanted a place for pods to grow and It probably helps my Trates too. You could try something like that sometime down the road.
