Pops, are you going to cycle for knowledge? Because otherwise, you can just transfer media from an already established tank.
Willow can do that too, but it's tricky using seeded media from a smaller tank to start a bigger tank. You have to stock slowly. I would only start with a few fish in a 100 gallon. There is more flexibility with a larger tank - creates a buffer of sorts in the beginning. So long as you don't proportionately stock the tank (I put one fish in a 10, so ill put 10 fish in a 100), the extra volume will keep the water quality from slipping too much. You should be ready for more fish by the time the new fish are through quarantine.
