You're more than welcome Jerry, and I wish you luck (we all need some it seems!). Post your water parameters when you have the test kit (I and others highly recommend the API Freshwater combination kit, it tests for pH, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate; in my opinion this is usually all you need). I think I've outlined the cycling but if you've any questions later, we're all on here to help.
