Cycling Tank

I had a question about cycling my 10 gallon tank, how many days of adding ammonia until the NO2 spikes?

The ammonia is currently at 5ppm.

One 29 Gallon - Lots of Fish
One 10 Gallon - One White Crayfish
One 15 Gallon - Baby Bullfrogs

I used these guidelines for my fishless cycle: Fishless Cycling - Tropical Fish Forums

I used the add and wait method (or something like that). My fishless cycle went very, very quickly however I used media from my existing tank and I have alot of plants in my new tank, which helped. I was told with all of the plants that I have, I didn't need to bother w/ a fishless cycle but I have angelfish and two of my angelfish are a breeding pair, so I didn't want to chance it. I'm still checking my water parameters 2x per day and will continue to do so for the next few weeks. I know it's probably overkill, but I feel better to be safe than sorry.

Hopefully mine will be over with soon. I have 6 live plants and some "rub" from another established tanks filter.
