cycling tanks

I've got a couple of questions. First, after reading that the lead weights can be toxic I removed them from my plastic Bosai. Now the trees are continuously floating at the top, thanks to the weather loaches. Any advise for weights for these? Also, I have read about cycling tanks. My current tank has been up for years and I have never actually "cycled" a tank (kind of got them going by luck I guess). Well, now I'm going to be moving and want to set up another 20 gallon tank for the golden loaches. How should I cycle this tank. The tank was previously used by my parents and has been sitting empty for a couple of months. Thanks for any advise you have.
