Fish less cycle takes the same amount of time as cycle with fish in the tank, it's just really hard on your fish to have them in there while the tank is cycling. Please read the article Darth mentions above on cycling as you do not seem to have a full understanding. And it is the most important thing in this hobby.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.

with a fish in cycle it takes longer, about 6-8 weeks, and you have to do 50% water changes whenever ammonia or nitrites hit 0.5ppm. With a fish less cycle, you don't have to do water changes, just add ammonia and then monitor the ammonia and nitrites.

that thread is about having fish in the tank with vinegar.

You can use vinegar if you don't have fish in the tank. Just rinse it very well afterwards. Fill and refill 2-3 tiimes to remove vinegar residue.

You will have to get a better filter than what you have......that Whisper is insufficient for a 55, & again, it's just a mechanical filter....& I really have to stress that you do some research & learn how the nitrogen cycle works, it's pretty clear from your statements you simply do not have a working knowledge of how it works, & you are setting yourself up for heartache & failure w/out that information.

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
