    I would wait until you have a heater and filter. You will also need a test kit, preferably one with liquid reagents and test tubes rather than strips, and a bottle of ammonia solution which does not contain any detergent, perfume etc.

    Then follow the instructions in here http://www.fishforums.net/threads/cycling-your-new-fresh-water-tank-read-this-first.421488/


    You do not need an air stone provided the filter moves the water round the tank. They are mostly used because people like the looks of the bubbles.
