Newbie with a question

So i set up a 55 gal (48x12x18) tank this past saturday. I figured i would start small for the initial cycle then add everything else right before i stocked the tank. What i mean is i bought 1 HoB filter, gravel, and 1 small lava rock initially. Well this got me to thinking and I'm guessing i really need to have my second filter in the tank during the cycle and possibly all the decor i plan to add later during this initial cycle. Is this correct that i should have everything in the tank for the initial cycle?

You are correct, for the best results you should have both filters running and all substrate and decor in to seed. :thumb:
