The best way to fishless cycle is by adding a source of ammonia.
You can get bottled ammonia at most grocery stores.Its in with the laundry detergents.
Here is how its done.

Also My tank has tons of tiny bubbles all over everything....is this normal?

Yep, that would be normal. They should go away on their own after a couple days.

If your looking for ammonia, Safeway sells it as "ammonia hydroxide" . Just make sure you don't get a lemon scented stuff.
It's a little watered down, but it will work. I used it when cycling my 10 gallon. It took me about 4 weeks. Make sure your testing the water and that will tell you when your readyIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
