cycling is the introduction of the nitrogen cycle, and the establishment of good bacteria into the tank. Basically the ammonia becomed converted to nitrItes, then the nitrItes become converted to nitrAtes. Nitrates are less harmful in low, constant meters than ammonia or nitrites.

I have had my betta for a week and a half. I am a fish/betta noob. The top of his bowl has a mass of bubbles - what is it? Dirty Water? I just replaced 50% the other day.

Does it look something like this?

If so, it is a Bubblenest! This means your betta is ready to breed. You don't have to breed, but this is a sign that the betta fish has reached maturity.

Wow! That totally dwarfs Mr. T's lil bubbles! Your fish is very pretty too! I can not seem to get a good clear photo of mine yet either. >=\ My photo doesnt do him justice - he would be horrified.

Yeah my new guy Jet the big dweeb that he is, hasn't gotten the hang of making bubble nest yet, instead he blows random bubbles all over his tank. It's funny
