Been meaning to talk to you about that, DQ. If this not an appropriate venue, please feel free to delete this post.
No disrespect to iamntbatman, but dated information is included in that guide. eg:
---shrimp and fishfood are no longer recommended ammonia sources
---fish-in cycling is controversial and no longer necessary.
In my opinion, it is not particularly well-written, nor is it as clear and concise as a guide for beginners should be.
I think Bahamut's pictorial guide would make a fine centerpiece for a new beginners guide. Her focus is on the background of how the cycle works. It just needs a tutorial on the actual procedure for implementing a safe, secure nitrogen cycle.
