I use pure ammonia and it works quicker simply because you don't have to wait for the ammonia to build up at all (I tried with fish food and it took forever, then I finally gave in and got ammonia), also it is much less messy ;) I think I got mine at Hannaford in the cleaning aisle (just make sure it's pure) and I have cycled many tanks with it since then.

As for time frame, I had one that cycled in 10 days and one that took 3 months (I used much more ammonia in this one because of the expected bio load). The others fell somewhere inbetween and I have established betta tanks with just an old filter sponge from a cycled tank and never had any problems.

Thanks for the tip, Kim. I'll probably use the pure ammonia if I can find it.
