The Cycle is Done!!!

After 6 (yes, 6) days of having water in my 10g tank and doing a fishless cycle with fish flakes, my cycle is done! Went to the pet store to have my water tested and had to ask the lady if she was sure several times XD I can't wait to put my betta in, I'd do it now but since its mothers day, my mom wouldn't be too happy with me hiding out downstairs keeping an eye on him. So excited!

Cool I got my betta on Wed. I was so excited to put him in his tank, but I didnt ask my mom to get him so she was mad. She finaly got over it and now he lives in my room.
This is the photo that looks the closest to my betta Mr.Red

Did you use anything to help speed up the cycle?

I used Kordon AmQuel Plus ammonia detoxifier and Nutrafin Bio-Clear, and I did a 50% water change on day three with the recommended doses as well.

Jeeeze... My tank took like 3 months. I think I did too many water changes though. Congrats!

I just recently finished my cycling too! I've been working on a fish-in cycle in a 20 long for a little over 2 months. It was the best day ever when it finally cycled, but now I am starting all over again with another 20 gallon

There is NO WAY that you can run in a tank in 6 days...donīt fool yourself !! Wait another week and check the nitrate ;)

I've been doing a fish-in cycle this whole month and havent seen a zero yet :( Chum seems really happy and healthy so I know the partial water changes Im doing are keeping it clean but it sure would be nice if this thing would hurry up and cycle. Im using the test strips right now but I think Ima order the kit when I get a little extra cash cuz I wanna be sure Im getting the right numbers
