I'm currently fishless cycling a 10g fry tank, for future use. What do I do with it once it is cycled if there are no fish to go in it? Should I just manually add ammonia every other day or so? Food maybe?

what type of filter will you be using?If its a sponge,you can hide it behind some rocks in your main tank,or if its a hob you could run that on your main tank as well,that way theyre always ready,during a water change as long as your trates arent too high you could put the water in the 10g pull out or off the seeded filter,presto cycled fry tank

I'm running a Hydro I Sponge Filter on the 10g. So you're saying just throw it in? Should I continue to run an airstone with it or will water just running by give it enough bio action?
