Thumbs up New guy, Great site!

Hello ladies and gentle-fish,

I stumbled upon this site while researching fish-less cycling on my first tank a month ago and it was so darn full of information I bookmarked it. I planned on joining once my tank was up and running so I'd have something to show off and discuss, but, I ran into a snag. So, out of necessity, I have joined today!! Yay!

I've always wanted fish but never had the space. Since I moved into a larger apartment, I know have the space to properly display a tank.

This is gonna be GREAT!!(If you can't tell, I'm excited)

Thanks! I'm glad I did once I read through some of the horror stories and bad experiences others have had for me to learn from.

I'm having a hard time starting the cycle process, the ammonia was originally above 8ppm for a week and a half and I read this may slow or stall the process. I then completed a 50% water change and brought it down to 4ppm and its been at 4ppm for almost 3 weeks now with all other parameters being OK and NitrItes and NitrAtes sitting at zero.

In another thread of mine, I was advised of some activated filter media through a website that I will be trying out to see if this can kick start my process.

Welcome. Patience is the key to your cycle. Try asking your LFS for some used media to jump start.
