Welcome, you may want to read up about fish-less cycling - it is a method of preparing the filter for sustaining fish :tup:

Fish-less cycling is essentially a method of growing bacteria which process ammonia and nitrite in the filter without risking the health of live fish, so has nothing to do with shared filtration systems.

In short, one starts by making sure the pH is over 7.5 and water temperature is at 29 °C (which are optimum conditions for the growth of these bacteria). One then adds pure household ammonia to the aquarium water, to a concentration of 3-5 ppm and keeps it at that until the filter can process both ammonia and nitrite down to 0 ppm within 12 hours. Once that happens, one needs to wait for the qualifying week of all ammonia and nitrite being processed within 12 hours. Once you are sure that the bacterial colonies are stable, we preform a 100% water change with dechlorinated water, adjust water temperature to what we want to use (usually 22-25 °C for average tropicals) and add 1/3-2/3 of final fish stocking on the same day.

It is normally a much faster method of growing bacteria that a fish-in cycle and allows fuller stocking sooner. Also no animals are hurt in the process.
