Thread: Cycling Time

Hi everybody! I was wondering if somebody could give me the approximate time it will take to cycle an aquarium. Also, how much does the number of gallons of water in an aquarium effect how quick it cycles?

It depends on how you cycle your tank. Fishless cycling is generally easier and quicker than fish-in cycling and could take as little as 2-3 weeks if done properly. Generally, there isn't a huge deviation between large and small tank cycling times, although I found that it was a bit quicker to cycle my larger tank than it was my smaller tank.
