Because I actually have something that living in this tank that I have spent money on, I'm going to start up 25% water changes a week again.
I actually got quite lucky here recently. My LFS (the non-chain one) carries a brand called Aqualife. They bottle ammonia specifically for cycling. Of course you have to be careful not to use a water conditioner that binds ammonia... otherwise you're just adding ammonia for no reason...
