My Oh My

My tank has reached the beginning of it's cycle.  I woke up this morning to a VERY cloudy tank.  My ammonia levels are still high, which is good considering I don't have a kit to test my nitrites and nitrates.  I will have to get one soon.  I decided to return the Betta to his tank just incase the levels and cloudyness would cause him any kind of discomfort.  I'm opting for a fishless cycle, which in theory will take less time. 

So here's my timeline:

5/17 set up tank
5/18 ammonia peak, and added betta
5/19 official start of my cycle, cloudy water, removed betta

Also, my son Johnathon has named the Betta Roo.  Should have asked him in the first place...
