My name is Bryan and I am new to the hobby. My family had a 55 gallon freshwater tank as a kid and I have gotten back into it with a 125 gal tank. I have just recently started fish less cycling my own freshwater tank a few days ago and would appreciate some seeding material to cut my cycling time down so I can get my community started.

Hello and Welcome to AA! Try asking your LFS for seed material! Many times they will squeeze a sponge out for you into a bag (which is almost as good as getting the sponge itself). Then you'll have yourself a nice back of dirty bacteria water to get you started. If not, try putting an ad on craigslist to find someone local. Good luck!
