I am using the fish in method of cycling the tank (12 neon tetras).

Would adding lots of plants speed up, slow down the cycling process in a 45gal tank? By how much? (a lot? a little?)
I didn't answer that part because I don't know. Sorry!

A few months I'm sure. Unless a disease occurs.

I got some slate for my tank from my LFS. It's soaking in hot water till tomorrow. Then I'm gonna silicone it into a neat little sculpture. Is it safe? The LFS guy said it was.

thank you Neil D, i guess i'll have to use ial/green decaf for further calming effects.

are IAL the only leaves you can put in a betta's tank or are most leaves safe to put in?

I'm not sure. Make a new thread, it seems a bit more interesting.

My question again: I got some slate for my tank from my LFS. It's soaking in hot water till tomorrow. Then I'm gonna silicone it into a neat little sculpture. Is it safe? The LFS guy said it was.

Yes, slate is safe. I have it in a number of my tanks - betta tanks included. :)

Yay! How long do you have to let AQ silicone dry on slate? Does it have to be 48hrs?

That I don't know since I have never used it. It SHOULD tell you how long it has to cure on the tube.
