I'm sorry... I just meant that I didn't know to cycle at first, so I didn't do it beforehand (which I should have done) and without a test kit I don't really know where I am exactly in the cycling process, or if the process has been through the complete cycle...
Thank you for your advice! and I'm glad the Anacharis will help...they seem to be doing well and growing quickly. I really like them and Gloria does too. As long as she is happy, then I'm happy!
