Due to an unforseen circumstances I will need to get some "cycled" water for the new tank. I would like to do it myself, but I just don't have the time as Steve already picked up the puffers for me from langly and they are right now sitting in a 1G tank. I was originally planning to have the tank setup tomorrow and start the cycling until saturday then give the tank to my gf as her birthday present. However, the puffers arrived a bit too soon... lol (but a big thanks to Steve for helping me picking them up) I was wondering if its possible for me to get some cycled water from you guys at the Richmond location if that's possible.

Of course, if I need to purchase a fish or so or even buy the water, that will be ok.

Thanks

Nick

you should get some dry bacterial cultures microbe-lift/tac.
this is what i used when i cleaned all my filters at the same time as a 75% water change.
and i had no issues with any live stock.

You can also get some gravel etc or borrow someone's "extra filters in the tank" for a while.
gravel will only help kickstarting the cycling process. "cycled water" IMO would not help at all.
