I found a 10g I am hoping to get, but not positive. I read the page on cycling, but I was wondering if I would even need to cycle if I didn't use the filter, or if since it was a 10g I would need to cycle. I would really just like to get the fish lol, but I dont want to kill it, so if I am going to have to cycle I will be doing a fishless cycle. And are there any tricks to making it cycle faster, or do I just have to let it go at its own speed? What if the tank was cycled before? the tank I am looking at I think is used, but not sure (I found it on craigs list.) will it still need to by cycled?
If I don't use a filter in the 10g would I just need to clean it alot more often?
In case I don't get this tank, I will more then likely get a 5g, will that need to be cycled? If I get the 5g more then likely I won't use a filter since I have read some betta just don't like it.
That and I have noticed some people say that their filters were to strong or something like that, and I would perfer to just not have to buy another one. For the 10g or the 5g.
Sorry for posting questians daily, but I am just trying to learn, and keep thinking up questians so please bare with me XD.
And if you guys can think of anything I have missed that I should know about betta, their habits, care, whatever please tell me. If I am going to be making such a big purchase I like to do it right especially when it involves living creatures. So all help is greatly welcomed. So thanks in advance.
