Did a fishless cycle on my 55g tank using liquid ammonia. First time doing this and wow was it quick. Checked water parameters daily, sometimes twice a day and it only took 9 days to complete the cycle process. I have since added plants and a few fish. Nitrate levels so far are staying around 6ppm. I am using Marineland's Penguin Bio-wheel filters. They seem to do a great job. I really like the design of them. I now have a 28g tank I am starting and will do the liquid ammonia cycle process on it also. I highly recommend this as it really speeds things up. Here is a photo of the 55g tank with a few plants and fish in it. I will be adding more and will update pictures as things change.
