Fishless cycle?
 
Hey Guys I am hopefully starting up a 10 gallon planted tank . I know you have to do the nitro cycle ( I have a 55 gallon Saltwater tank) but I was wondering is there a way that you can do it with out fish? like some sort of solution you put in there? With my saltwater I used damsels but I don't want to use "disposable" fish for my freshwater. Do you guys have any ideas?? Thanks!!

There is a product they make now that will cycle your aquarium in 48hrs. Its called Safe Start. You can get it at most fish stores now. You still will wanna monitor parameters to ensure it has cycled.

Hope this helps!
