cycling for the newbie
Hi all, I am new to the boards and new to freshwater tanks. I have just begun to cycle (without fish) a 20g tank. I read, on this site I believe, that using some substrate, an old filter pad, etc from a healthy tank is a great way to speed things up. So.. Is there anyone out there ( I live in Westminster) that has some material to help a new guy out? I am feeling very new at this, so anyone local that could lend advice would be held in high esteem!
While we are at it, any advice on where to get rocks that are safe, or driftwood to start my aquascaping? I went to the Fish Den and looked at driftwood, holy expensive!
Thank you all! Mac
