no you don't need 30 gals of RO (reverse osmosis) water if you change 25% that makes it 7.5 gals you would need per change
then if you only use half RO and half tap water as an example 1 PPM (Particles Per Million) Ammonia will become 0.5 PPM your filters have approx 15 X's more chance of handling 0.5 PPM than they do with 1 PPM.
so go and get 4-5 gals of RO and try this is should cycle in one change if you already have it started and using something like Interpet filter start
