The reason I'm here.

This is Dusty, king of his domain and the guy that shares my den with me.

Thanks gang for the welcomes.

Here's one more of the complete setup. The tank was in storage until a month and a half ago when I decided it was about time to set it up again. I wasn't sure what I was going to put in it, and it sat empty cycling until I ran across Dusty at a local Petco. He looked like he needed a good home.

Hey & Welcome...i set up a 20 gallon long tank 2 weeks ago & its still just sitting here cycling,ive never had a tank before & Im sort of stuck...i have the filter & air stone going & have added the tropical fish start up pack -stree coat and stress zyme ,all this was started 2 weeks ago today,yet the water never clouded up like it was suposed to ....I have no gravel in the tank as ive been told its healthier for the fish w/ no gravel, not to mention easier to clean.....but i dont know is it too late to add gravel now ? would i need to start the cycling process all over if i add gravel now ?

I bought a betta off Aquabid & he should be arriving here Thursday...i do have a 2 gallon bowl i can keep him in untill the 20 gallon is ready ?

You'll probably get various opinions. Personally I like gravel as far as appearance, plus it helps the tank by giving the beneficial bacteria a place to colonize. The bacteria colony is what will stabilize your tank in the long run. And it's necessary if you ever want to plant the tank.

As far as cleaning, I just run a siphon vacuum over the surface of the grave once a week to pick up loose debris.

If you want to add gravel, now would be the time while the tank is still unstocked. And again, personal opinion, but adding a single Betta to a 20 gallon tank will actually help the cycling process along, and shouldn't affect the Betta at all.
