I understand now that it may take 6 or more weeks to cycle a tank. I do not own a betta yet and we would like to get one male within two weeks, but is it bad to put him in an uncycled tank?
I know I want to go with at least a 5-10 gal tank. I would prefer rectangle. I like the look of the fluval spec 5 gal, but I am worried about him jumping out the opening at the top and the filter being too strong for a male betta.
I am getting overwhelmed by all the choices. Can you all reccomend your favorite 5-10 gal rectangle tanks and low flow, non-fin damaging filters? Any decent kits? If I have to buy it all seperatly to get the best tank, filter and heater I will.
I would also like to get a ADF and I have read the sticky on their care. Is it better to get a betta and an ADF at the same time or add an ADF later?
Thanks in advance!
