Han, buddy, listen carefully!
Put the fish in the 5gal with the heater.
Put in your plabts and decorations. Do a 50% water change twice a week in the 5gal.
The idea is to cycle the filter in the 1gal. It doesn't matter how long it takes. When it's done, you put the cycled filter into the 5gal.
Write back and tell me that you understand this. OK?
