Am I Doing This Right?

    I haven't cycled in a while. I just started my 10 gallon and am going for slightly harder species (chili rasboras, pygmy cories (I know, debatable. They have a nicely interesting decorated tank), RCS) and am going for a fishless cycle. My readings were 1.5, 0, 30 (I have nitrates in my tap). I am cycling with Tetra Safestart (poured whole bottle in my filter bed) and Dr. Tims Pure Ammonia. Is this normal?

    Yes, that's similar to what I do when I cycle.
    I use Ace Hardware ammonia, and that's the only different thing.
