By not waiting you could spend a lot of money trying to speed up the cycling process which won't help.A DSB
will also take a long time to establish,how will you get a live dsb
anyway?if you get a lot of live sand from another system you'll also be getting all the crap which comes with it causing another cycle.You have to be patient in this hobby
