- Would it be safe to ask for gunk from a pet store tank or would that be too risky for its worth as far as diseases and such?
My betta won't even flare at my finger, but I'm not sure I want to chance Danios hurting him.
Plants/ Plant bulbs wont mess your cycle up.
What you could do is ask if the pet shop will give/sell some of their gravel from one of their established tanks..
Danios "SHOULD"be fast enough to Evade the betta.
