hi there.wow it looks great!!!

just an update on my tank

well heres my progress so far
22/07 ammonia = the start of the cycle.i added 4ppm of ammonia.
24/07 ammonia = 4ppm - nitrite = 0ppm - nitrate = 0ppm
27/07 ammonia = 3ppm - nitrite = 0.25.ppm - nitrate = 5.0ppm
29/07 ammonia = 2ppm - nitrite = 2ppm - nitrate = 10ppm
30/07 ammonia = 0.25ppm - nitrite = 2.0ppm - nitrate = 10ppm
i then put in enough ammonia to bring it back up to 4ppm
31/07 ammonia = 0 - nitrite 2.0ppm - i didnt test nitrate
i then added ammonia to bring it up to 4ppm
1/08 ammoina = 0 - nitrite = 5.0ppm - nitrate = 20ppm
i have just added more ammonia to bring it up to 4ppm.
using the add & wait method i will keep doing this untill both the ammonia & nitrite are going to 0ppm from 4ppm within 12 hrs.then it will be cycled

the golden rule would be adding the least territorial first an in small batches not all at once
