I wonder if it would help to do like a 50% WC to get rid of some of that ammonia...might take a long time for the bb to build up enough to eat all that ammo then it will really take a long time to cycle.
Mine is cycling fine now, with a nitrite reading t hat's growing (no traceable nitrate but I bet I get a reading tomorrow). Still adding fish food. I'm just enjoying taking care of the plants in there. I figure if I can keep them alive for a few weeks then I deserve some fish
