I have a 10G im using as a fry tank but I stood it up quickly and it has not cycled. Without putting my main tank at risk of a mini cycle could I take out 1 of the 2 media pads from the Top Fin 30 (Replace with new) and put that media pad in the Top Fin 10 that came with the tank?
I think as long as you don't remove the media in the aqua clear, you will be fine!
Also, I think I have the same tank as you, and I think you should look into getting a different filter, as the one included isn't the greatest filter.
