Actually Tom, I ran across an old post of yours that described using 
mulm as mentioned in your post. My fishless cycle wasn't going 
anywhere, despite the fact that I had seeded with gravel and a filter 
cartridge from an established tank. I added mulm and that did the 
trick almost overnight. I think there's alot to be said for mulm. My 
son recently became interested in the hobby and I had him use mulm 
instead of fishless cycling. It worked out very well.

I guess this makes me a mulmist :)

JoAnn - Brrrrr...it's cold and icy in southern Colorado tonight.
