It is more important that your fish be warm. Put the heater in with him in the 5gal.

Put the filter in the 1gal, turn it up all the way and just keep it as warm as you can and put in the ammnia. The bacteria are all around in the air. Leave your tank open so they fall in. They will eventually. Cover it when it starts to cycle (when the ammonia starts to go down).

Ace hardware 10% Janitorial ammonia is the best. Get it.

Han, buddy, listen carefully!

Put the fish in the 5gal with the heater. Put in your plabts and decorations. Do a 50% water change twice a week in the 5gal.

The idea is to cycle the filter in the 1gal. It doesn't matter how long it takes. When it's done, you put the cycled filter into the 5gal.

Write back and tell me that you understand this. OK?
