No, just make sure you keep 'feeding' the tank until you get livestock in there. A cycled tank needs a constant supply of an ammonia source or the bacteria will starve and die.

if it was not for the fact that dwarf seahorses are better kept in smaller tanks for feeding concentration---i personally would NEVER fool with a small tank because of the fact that it does not allow much room for errors, oops and oh no.

thank you so much for your help.
