You don't need to be using that product. Just buy regular old ammonia at the store. It will be a whole lot cheaper and will grow bacteria just fine. I wrote an article in the articles section (thanks for saying it was good Spongebob) that walks you through a step by step process of how to do a fishless cycle. I would suggest looking at it and then asking if you have any more questions. To cycle a tank from scratch generally takes 4-6 weeks. The ammonia generall spikes after a week or so. Then it takes the nitrites 3-4 weeks to spike. Welcome to the site, by the way.What kind of fish are you putting in there once it is cycled?
