I'm starting a new 10-gallon tank, can I just fill it with cycled water from an established tank and call it a day?
Sadly, the bacteria is in the filter and on the decor so you can't just add the water. You can add some decor, substrate, and/or a filter cartridge from your cycled tank.

thanks. will a filter cartridge plus 10 gallons of cycled water make it habitable for fish?
old filter cartridges really help! id wait a week or two to make sure its actually cycled. in the meantime you could put some plants in there
