Will the filter sponge still have the bacteria even if it has been dried out for 6 months? If so, I will search hard for it - if not, I will just get a new one.
I didn't know you could cycle without fish for ammonia - could you give the the name of a product that I can use instead? How does that work? Is there less frequent testing involved - or, for that matter, how long does it take to cycle with an ammonia product? I am a bit pinched on aquarium funds at the moment, so if the fish method is less expensive, I will probably go that direction (unless, of course, you save by having to test less...?)
