Hey everyone, I have a quick question,

I have just set up my first ever fry tank, it's a 33 gallon, and for the first time I am using a sponge filter.

About 24 hours ago I put the sponge filter in my Mbuna tank, just to gather some sort of bacteria, I was wondering how important it is to have a fully cycled sponge filter in a fry tank, since I will be doing alot of water changes and such anyway?

I was going to keep the tank bare with nothing but a sponge filter and a heater, but should I take one of the rocks from my main tank and put it in the fry tank for the bacteria?

Or will I be fine just moving forward as is with just the sponge?

Thanks for any advice.
