You can use filter media from your other two tanks (if they are healthy) to jumpstart the filter on your new tank. I have found that I can immediately cycle a tank with using sponges from my existing tanks. I generally keep an extra filter running, just to have nicely seeded sponges.

The onion could be a crinum, which is aquatic.
