New Picotope Set Up Questions


I'm setting up a 3 gallon picotope for shrimp, substituting an Aquaclear 20 for the stock filter, as well as replacing the original light with a Finnex FugeRay Planted+ LED clip light. I also have an Hydor 25 watt Theo heater. I'll be using either Fluval Stratum for shrimp or Aqua Soil Amazonia, depending on comments. What kind of filter media should I use? I won't be using CO2. Any tips on cycling? I have well water. Also, do I run the heater and/or light when cycling? Thanks!
