Yesterday I set up my new 20 gallon long tank. For the lighting, I am using a Finnex Ray2 30". For filtration, I am using an Eheim Pro 3 2071. The heater is an Eheim Jager 100w and for the substrate, I am using Fluval Stratum. I will be using a Fluval Co2 kit and an Eheim air pump.

Right now I am doing a fishless cycle with fish food and Prodibio Biodigest.

I have a 5lb co2 canister on my 16g. The tank was $60, solenoid/regulator was $40, co2 was $10, and the other miscellaneous items were about $20.

That means the heterotrophic bacteria is already doing its job. That's the first of many bacterias Biodigest includes.
Do you mean the autotrophic bacteria? I thought heterotrophic were the ones in bacterial blooms and autotrophs are the ones that are useful for cycles.

Why not use ammonia? Fish food is just going to make a mess before the fish even get in there..
