I dont suppose you have another tank you can borrow some mulm from to seed the new tank, it would help jumpstart your cycle. Best thing you can do for now is water changes to keep the ammonia down. If you dont have the time to do a 25% water change every day than do a larger one up to 50% as often as you can. Might be a little hard on the fish but not as hard as if your tank goes eutrophic.

thanks =) she is a gem... thinks she's a princess
but she was just trying to drink the water I was pumping out of the aquarium :/

FuzzAz - I can probably handle 25% every 2 days or so
but I didn't notice much of a change in the ammonia with a 25% water change
not really sure how soon after I change the water I should be re-testing (an hour later or the next day or what?)
I mean I test it every day - and when I change the water I test it again as scheduled, the following day and the ammonia doesn't seem lower
but until yesterday I wasn't getting any readings above .25 (yesterday and this morning it was at .50) just did a 25% (or so) water change a little while ago - I'll test again tonight I guess and see how it is... if I have to I can do another water change tomorrow - if it's down to .25 or under I'll do 25% - if it's still saying .50 maybe I should do 50%??
good grief... isn't this hobby supposed to be RELAXING??!! hehehe
