I've cycled 8 tanks recently and have to say, driftwood was the fastest of the tanks. In under a week I was already up to nitrites decreasing and nitrates rising. For faster results, you can use NitroMax or similar bacteria seed. Just be aware, cycling is individual to each tank and even with identical setups, you will get differing results.
