No it can't hurt. I was just wondering if it would be substantial enough to not have to do a fishless cycle as well. I have done fishless cycles on two tanks so far and I always use seed material. It's just that I don't know if I could just say, put the filter sponge (I may even have 2) in and immediately add fish. Bettas have a pretty light bioload, and if I only had one or two in a 10 gallon that would not add up to a lot of ammonia....
Of course I don't want to cut corners that could be detrimental to the health of my fish, hence the reason that I'm asking. :)
