NOTHING! Dont use any of that cycle crap. All that does is introduce bacteria to your tank but then it dies off because it has nothing to feed off of so your just at stage one. The best way to let your tank cycle is fishless or w/ fish. It takes time, fish-keeping is a game of patience :D

Okay thats good. But dont use any bacteria starter. Just let your tank be it will take time sometimes up to a month but it's better to do it the right way then anything at all.

Yep you sure did. You could go get some live plants with it instead. Or something around there ;)
