How to Cycle a Fish Tank the EASY Way!

Cycling a new aquarium just means growing plants and beneficial bacteria that help purify the water from the toxic ammonia in your fish’s urine and poop. This process always takes forever, but since I already own a few tanks, here’s what I did to speed things up when cycling my daughter’s new tank.
