Thanks! I wasnt sure if a cup would float and not upturn.

I keep my fish in a little gladware container while i'm changing the water. With the heater I put new water in the tank that was a little less hot than what it originally was. Because the water in the cup cools but when I add the new water the heater will warm it up. So its roughly the same temperature.

This tank doesnt leave much room for a cup to get water out ( if you keep the filter in place ) and a gravel vac is kind of too big to work. So I'm curious what others have done. I only want to do maintenance once a week, i dont mind if its 100% but figured if i can cycle then i could do less each week and not have to remove the fish as ( like my original questions suggest ) I am unsure of the best way to reintroduce the fish back into the tank or what to keep him in while cleaning.
Wow.. rude much!

I have a 2g eclipse with filter and i put a heater in as well. Im attempting to cycle it ( fishless ) since it has a biowheel and all. But not really sure if it will cycle nor am i really sure how much water change i should do each week.
FYI I was trying to help you with this part..since you didn't include info on how you were cycling I was asking questions to try to help you better. If I didn't give input on your other questions obviously I had no input.
