All you need is the mulm from a dirty filter to seed your tank. Just let your own filter pick it up out of the water column.

Nobody near you? Not a member of a club?

My filters were all cleaned during the Sandy blackout and I suspect all of my tanks are now cycling all over again. Otherwise, I'd offer you some mulm.
