    Great article on cycling a new tank. Your information was more concise and detailed than other articles I have read. I'm using the straight ammonia method (no fish or plants) and have a few questions:

    1.You did not mention water changes in this method. The first day I overdosed the tank and had to change about 40% of the water to get the ammonia level to 4.0 ppm. Do I need to do any water changes throughout this process?
    2. When can I add plants? I bought a few anubias and staurogyne repens in gel packs so a have a while before they "dry out".
    3. Should I wait until the complete water cycle before adding any algae eaters. I haven't developed any algae yet but thought they would be the best first in the tank. I am thinking about shrimp and catfish.

    Sorry so long but I could use some guidance on these issues.

    Thank you in advance
