    Should I slow down my aquaclear filter during my fish less cycle? Or does it even matter?

    Run it at capacity, There's nothing to be disturbed by the flow [Not that it is excessive] and you might as well use it's full capabilities.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Doesn't really make a difference although at full flow you'll be pulling more new water into the filter vs. recirculating the old.

    Also, will it hurt to add another filter after I have started to cycle? My lfs will won't have my other filter in until tomorrow and I started cycling yesterday.

    No, It is all old water being recirculated. If you meant that it turns over the water in the tank more quickly.. Then Yes.
