Starting a cycle
Hey, So I just got a 3.5 gallon tank the other day and I'm starting to think about decorating. I had a smaller tank before so I never really considered it before, but I want to start a nitrogen cycle with plants this time.
The problem: I have gravel. Is there any thing I can do? Or do I have to replace it with dirt?
3.5 Gallon tank
1 Crowntail Betta fish - Amber
1 Golden Mystery Snail - Apollo
1 Black Mystery Snail - Orion
And a lot of unaccounted for snails...
