    Why do you HAVE to do one? I'm confused as to why you couldn't go fishless. At the very least invest in some Bio-spira to get things going. But using fish is probably the last thing to do.

    My lfs has never heard of fishless cycling, so therefor they do not sell fish ammonia, without the amonia, I cannot do a fishless cycle.

    You can pick up the ammonia that you'll need at a local hardware store. Lady Hobbs could even tell you the exact make if I'm not mistaken. I'd help you out with it but I didn't use ammonia to do mine when I had a freshwater, I used the Bio-Spira to get started. Not trying to get on your case or anything, sorry if it seemed that way. I was just wondering what your logic was.
