If you see my post history, you'll see that I've been trying to cycle my tank for over a month. It just won't start. I now decided to make YouTube videos documenting my journey. Can someone maybe watch them and let me know if they catch something I don't? I'm at a loss for words here... Not sure what else to do. The videos are on average 2 minutes each and there are 5 of them as of today (since I started using a cycling bacteria 5 days ago). Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

First Video - There are 4 others

Have you used a water conditioner? Chlorine/Chloramine can kill off bacteria before it can get established. How are you providing a source of ammonia?

Yup, dechlorinated. I used pure ammonia to cycle.
I have since decided to restart everything. I did a 90% WC and started to use fish food as ammonia.
