I would recommend setting it up with AquaSafe Plus, and waiting 24 hours. Go purchase your new fish, no more than 1 per 10 gallons of water and Tetra SafeStart Plus. As the fish float in the tank in their bags, pour the TSS Plus into the tank. Mix a little bit of the tank water in the bags with the fish, wait a couple of minutes, add a little more water to the bags, and again, wait. After the fish have floated about 15 minutes altogether, drain them into a net over top of a clean bucket. Gently place them in the tank immediately. The SafeStart Plus will seed your biological filter and cycle the tank in no more than 2 weeks.
