Ahhh yes the ol nitrogen cycle! I agree with all the posts on this topic of whether or not your tank has cycled and how to go ahead and start the growth of the beneficial bacteria. I like the idea of using the established filter media to jump start the tank with already established bacteria. Make sure you have some source of ammonia to keep the cycle going and go out and get a nice test kit for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate. You pretty much have to for this cycle cuz it's one of those things where we are dealing with microscopic bacteria. Kinda tough to see with our eye balls what's goin on in there Here is a video I did on the nitrogen cycle if you would like to view it, but it sounds like you got this tank rolling very nicely! Best of Luck!
