I'm also in the middle (beginning?) of cycling a new 28g tank with 7 leopard Danios. I floated two used filters the first couple of days, then added some live plants and two mosquito fish. Next I added a nice planted driftwood that had been in a lfs tank for about a year. I'm hoping that I have plenty of bacteria in there but I still don't have nitrates. Last night when I tested I had 0.25 ammonia (0 nitrites and 0 nitrates) so I changed out about 20% or so of the water. I started my tank on 12-24 so it's been two and a half weeks now.

so it seems like even with established stuff added to the tank it's taking a while.
