you dont. some fish are considered "good starter fish". these are fish that can tolerate higher levels of ammonias and nitrites than most. You should also plan to lose fish when cycing with fish as some will perish. Best bet to boost the cycle is to bag up your old filter media and bring it to her house. Squeeze the filter media out into her filter (yes, nasty green and brown gook included) this will introduce large quantities of the necessary bacterias into her tank.

With fish in the tank, of course, you should maintain zero ammonia and nitrites via water changes.
