I was thinking about bottled bacteria to help a little but I don't know if you'd want to. I'm still experimenting with it, the only thing it does is speed up the process not really "instantly cycle"

I think I'm going to stay away from the bottled bacteria. I prefer the natural approach.

It will eventually. Just not right away.

And here it is! Just waiting for it to clear up and in a couple days ill do a test to see where the parameters are at. From there ill determine if and when the fish will go in. Obviously a lot more rock is going to be needed.
