I recently read that I acan cycle a tank with cocktail shrimp ---I'm wondering if I can begin cycling without salt LFS is 50 miles I'd like to start cycling if its possible until I can get ther. I have a ten gallon tank with a couple damsels and a chocolate star 6 months now and I would like to start working with a bit larger tank. Resently I obtained a 29gal hexagon --anyu advice on substrate and filtration would be apreciated.

first of all to start a the cycle for a saltwater fish tank you will need salt. and yes you can cycle your tank by adding a cocktail shrimp and letting it decompose. for your 29g depending on how much you want to spend the filtration I would use would be live rock, live sand, a powerhead and a skimmer.
