you will need to test your water to follow the cycle. it usually takes 6-8 weeks. start by adding an ammonia source like a piece of raw shrimp from the grocery store. test for ammonia until it peaks and starts to go down. then test for nitrite until it peaks and goes down. then for nitrates. once you show 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and any nitrates you can do a large water change to lower the nitrates and add your clean up crew
