    The water alone will not make your breeder tank cycled as it does not contain enough bacteria

    You have to look at this breeder tank either a a complete new set up and cycle it like you would any other tank or you can seed it by squeezing out some filter material from your established tank into the filter of the breeder tank (the gunky brown bacteria stuff that accumulates in the filter) this should cycle it a lot lot quicker.

    Squeeze it into the filter material of the new filter... that way you transfer the bacteria from your older tank into the new
