Well first hello everyone :)
I got my first betta for Christmas!! He's a half-moon king and he just adorable :).
I didnt get to cycle his tank first though. I wanted to get him out of that cup with dirty water so I set him up in his new 2.5 gal tank. Is there anything I can do to promote the cycle of his tank though, without hurting him I it?
I've been keeping an eye on his ammonia levels and changing about 50% of his water every night to keep up with it. He seems pretty happy though. He even started his first bubble nest yesterday afternoon :)
Any ideas or suggestions would help:) i may be able to get a cup of a friends gravel from his cycled tank. He's got a little catfish right now. Would it be a good idea to use that in alex's tank to promote the cycle? I'm just concerned about possible contamination ( I know his little catfish hasn't been in the best of health lately?)
