So I'm buying a 10 gallon tank tomorrow. I just have a few questions since I'm pretty new to bettas. :3
I currently only have my one veil tail, Ares. Originally, I was going to cycle the tank because I was going to stock the tank with some shrimp and a few rasboras. But then, I started lusting after a pk, and I made the decision to divide the tank three ways and cycle it anyway to make maintenance a little easier. I was planning on using a method I *think* I read about on here, using a piece of frozen shrimp to supply the ammonia as it breaks down, etc etc. And of course, I am definitely not buying any new bettas or putting Ares in the tank until the cycle is done. Lol.
But what should I have in the tank, if anything, when I cycle it? Since it's going to be divided, can I go ahead and put in the dividers before I cycle? Any opinions are more than welcome.
