I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Sure thing!
I have this liquid that im putting in my tank.. Its called "NUTRAFIN" Then under it says cycle. What it says it does is "Immediately Establishes Safe Biological Aquaruim Enviroment", "Poweful Responsive Ammonia and Nirite Elimination" , "Allows Immediate Introduction of fish" , "For Fresh and saltwater use"
Is this cycling it? Yesterday i poured 1:25. Today i put in 2:10. As it says to do on the back.

No it's not cycling. Some people claim to have had success with it, but these "cycling" products don't work 99% of the time. I've heard some people around here say it can stall the cycle? I don't really know about that so some else will have to chime in on that.

Ammonia or a raw, unseasoned shrimp from the grocery store. Just follow what you read in the Fishless cycling for dummies thread.
What test kit do you have? You'll need an ammonia tester too.

Good about reading it again. You want to be certain you understand it fully.
I hate to tell you this, but the testing strips are really inaccurate. (I'm sorry we never clarified that on your other thread.. ) You can get a liquid test, like API (highly recommended), from Walmart for $25. It has all the tests you need, it's much more accurate, and will last a longgg time.
