UPDATEEEEE

Added ammonia yesterday, and tested today. I was at about 4 ppm, so I did some water changes and got it to around 2. Cycling is beginning!
So I keep testing daily until the ammonia gets lower, and then add more right?

That's right keep it at 4 ppm until it can turn to nitrates in 24 hours so 4 ppm- 0ppm in 24 hrs and showing nitrates and NO nitrites

Thanks! You mean I'm DONE cycling when it can break 4 ppm NH3 down to 15-20 nitrAtes (right?) in 24h with no trites?

Update time!


Just finished washing 50lbs of blasting sand... It's in the tank with some pots and fake plants.
I tested the water today and the NH3 NH4+ was about 1.5 with nitrAtes about 6. The ammo was 4 yesterday and trAtes were 0... The filters were running on an existing tank so I think cycling might be going much quicker.
