Throw a cocktail shrimp into the tank. It will get the cycle going for you.

Stick some food (for a 55 gallon, quite a lot of food) into the tank every two to four days. After you get a ammonia spike, then a nitrite spike, you are done. Wait for the nitrite to come down, and then your tank is cycled.

Erik, you asked the cycling question in two different places. Please use one thread so all of us can follow it and better offer our advice. There is more info in the other thread from myself and others.

Look at the Freshwater Aquarium section. At the Thread (Another Ideas Thread) someone posted. I put a thread about Paludariums that was sort of different and interesting. The tank I saw that was a Paludarium was only a tiny 3 gal. tank. You can google Paludarium and their is a web site on how to get one set up.I posted this under Eileen
