Ok so I got a 10 gallon tank today. I have it in my room, decorated, filter and heater running, and the appropriate amount of water conditioner added.
Now I'd LIKE to add my betta as soon as possible.
Petsmart said wait 48 to 72 hours before adding the fish.
Now the questions:
I'm not really sure I want to cycle my tank. At the very least, I don't want to have to wait a month to move my fish from his current home. :/
Is it possible to put him in in three days, and just maintain his tank with frequent water changes? Will the tank eventually cycle itself anyways? How frequent must his water changes be?
I'm a little confused is all. Thanks for any help you can give! :)
