Please choose better language when describing things in future...

Please refer to some of the info in the >>articles section<< There is a basic guideline on how to cycle the tank as well as many other useful tidbits.

Cheers
Steve

The process is no different. As long as there is sufficient surface area's for bacteria to colonize and an ammonia source to begin the cycle, all the tanks if interconnected will cycle just fine.
