Not a couple cubes but maybe a half or so. I still like the flakes if you have any. Just 3 or 4 flakes every 5 or 6 days.

My 2 cents

HI,
Maybe some of the live sand from your primary tank 1/2 in or so, and a piece of live rock.
I am starting to think the best bio filter is lots of sand and live rock, every thing else is just water clearing .
I cycled a small tank with a sump using weekly additions of live sand from another tank for about a month some brisstle worms for the sand it cycled really fast.
The only problem was a sudden PH drop, the buffer is used up proably by the bacteria cycling the stuff out of the water.
Doug

Ummm, why not just go the easy route and add water from your almost cycled 135g? There should be plenty of bacteria in the water column by now
