Are you sure your using the term cycling right? Cause that means your ammonia and/or nitrates and/or nitrates are all high and not at zero. Most fish would die in a month or shorter under these conditions. Converted Millie's are the only fish I can think that might make it and those odds are still slim. A twenty five year cycle might make sense for a large sea. But that's still long. Restart the entire system would be my suggestion

So the tank has been up for twenty five years. But it had cycled and is no longer cycling.
