I almost did but it turned unnecessary.
What I've found though was the Ammonia Sulphur from the garden department of B&Q (around £6 if I remember correctly.)

I used fish flakes, my friend used a prawn. They can be just as reliable.

Hi, I've fishless cycled 4 tanks, ammonia can be got at Home Base. It really cuts down on the time to cycle if you can get some seed from an established tank.

Cool I live on the isle of wight, and we don't have a homebase here. A Maidenhead aquatics is going to be opening this year though on the island I've already handed in my application form wish me luck!
