i think fishless is easier and the same speed since you dont need to do immediate water changes and lives dont hang in the balance, there the same speed.

thanks musho. ill remember that for the future. the danios i have in there, even tho they r cycling, r much happier and healthier than where they were living before! they used to hide under the gravel for some strange reason, now they r active and they no longer have swollen bellies! my neighbour is gonna take em on. i tested water today, ammonia= .25, nitites =0 nitrates= 20. do i just wait til ammonia is 0????i have done 2 water changes, another due later

once ammonia and nitrite are 0 with detectable nitrates that didnt come from your tap water, then you are cycled
