I did a fishless cycle in a bedroom tank so the shrimp approach would not cut it. P-U. I used ammonia from Harris Teeter grocery store. Ran a new HOB
filter in another tank for 9 days, moved it and some media from the established HOB
into the new tank, dosed it with ammonia and in 6 days it was converting 4 ppm
ammonia in 24-30 hours.
