Well then, yes it would take longer than a day. Let me go find that thread with the cycling... give me a min. It took me about 2-3 weeks to do it, but it can take almost a month. If you could I'd get some media from your grandfather! Then you could put fish right in!

here it is The (almost) Complete Guide and FAQ to Fishless Cycling Oh, and there's always the good fish-in cycle as well, but it includes lots of PWCs! I'll get that link too!
Edit: here's a link:Other ways to cycle your tank.

Well... I have old media in my filter but i just washed it out. Also, my sponge filter has a fairly old sponge on it (grandpa gave it to me).
