Tips for encouraging the nitrogen cycle (in order of importance):

---Aeration/oxygenation (sponge filter, airstone, or good waterfall)
---Temperature ~82*
---As much filter flow as your fish can stand
---Darkness (unless you're growing plants)
---open top (so the bacteria can get in)

But, if you're setting up a NPT, you shouldn't have to even worry about cycling at all. OldFishLady stocks right after setting up. Check her articles and advice on NPTs.

You can use stuff from cycled tanks.
