Ok, so I'm going to try to get the 6G bookshelf tank from Petco up and running this weekend, and I would like to have it cycled. This is the tank: http://www.petco.com/product/14978/P...Aquarium-14978
My biggest question is the filter. Someone has already posted that they think the filter that comes with it is too strong. Any more personal experiences with it? The filter does hang over the back of the tank, which doesn't work with the place I want to put it, so it's not likely to stay longterm. SO, on with the questions...
I seem to recall having seen someone recommend something like these for bettas - are they good, and if so - what *other* than the item shown would I need to get to run it? If they aren't good, any suggestions on a filter that might work that does NOT hang off the back?
Which leads to the next question...if I were to order one of these, could I get the tank running with the kit it came with and switch to one of these without too much fuss when it arrives?
