well i've spent a week searching for the ideal way of cycling an aquarium. only two ways i've found was with fish. and with ammonia. i don't wanna let anything rot in my tank (just don't prefer it my self). we dont have a ace hardware anywhere its about 4 hours away to the nearest one. i've tried just about every place from here to 1-2 hours away from what i live. still cant find the correct ammonia all has surfacant's in it. what i would like to know is what are a few good fish to use for cycling and how long does it take for the cycle to complete using this method. i dont really care for it. but i think it would be much better than letting something rot in my tank.
