I don't understand the nature of this post. Why did you repeat the same thing four times in a row? The only way you will know your tank is cycled is if you test the water and your Ammonia and Nitrites come out to 0ppm. If they don't read 0, your tank is not cycled, regardless of what you have growing in there.

Nevermind. Original post was edited shortly after. **
