    Thats the one I have always used. Although it has changed since I first used it in the early 2000s. I am really hoping I can cycle this thing in a couple of weeks like I did last time. I am using a canister this go around instead of my AC 110 so only time will tell. I did load it up to the gills with unused biomedia I had left over from 6 years ago so I am guessing that will help as well.

    It just means there isn't any toxic ammonia in your tank. There is still ammonia, as shown by the API test, which means that your tank is not cycled. Wait for the cycle to complete.
