You're more than welcome Jerry, and I wish you luck (we all need some it seems!). Post your water parameters when you have the test kit (I and others highly recommend the API Freshwater combination kit, it tests for pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate; in my opinion this is usually all you need). I think I've outlined the cycling but if you've any questions later, we're all on here to help.

Byron.

I will get the kit today. I will post the results later on tonight. I hope my local pet store has the kit. I seen some yesterday but they were sold seperately. Can this kit be ordered on line ?

Thanks,
Jerry

The various tests are available individually but this will (usually) cost more than one complete kit. Its available online I'm sure, but then you will have to wait for it and I'm assuming your 10g is fairly new so you'll want to start testing it. There must be more than one fish store in Louisville I would think, try others if you can't find it at your regular lfs; the API test kits are widely available from what others have posted. Other brands may be as good, but whatever you get make sure it is the liquid test, not strips which are (according to many) inaccurate.
