35 gallon hex stocking and cycling.
I bought this 35 gallon hex for$90 off Craigslist(what a steal!). It came with a 350 gph canister filter, which are supposedly pretty good. Is this enough gph? The intake is attached to an under-gravel filter. I looked online and the filtration alone would cost about $150 (thanks again, Craigslist). So it had been set up for 8 months, and I kept all media and gravel that was already there, as well as like 2 gallons of their water. Is the bacteria I kept from the water, gravel, and media enough to deal with ammonia? Now, what can I stock in there? My pH is neutral-ish, a little low. I don't want to change it because, well, I'm too lazy/scared to screw with it. So it's 6.5-6.8. What do I stock it with?
