You have to let the tank run for 24 hours or more.
What company is your 5 gallon tank made by? My 5 gal was just set up yesterday i am going to add Rex tonight.

And also, I'm confused on how to cycle the tank. Is it possible to just add water+decor+filter+conditioner and let it sit over night, and then add the fish tomorrow...?

I can't spend too mcuh time because I don't have the room for 3 tanks with water. Maybe one or two, but three is too much at the moment...
It might get longer or stays like that. It's from those breeders out there just breeding without good stock. The offspring gets unbalanced fins and deformities in the outcome. :/

Cycling takes a month for 2 special bacteria to grow and eat nitrite and ammonia. You'll need to do 2 50%s per week. 1 just water and 1 gravel siphoning. It won't cycle over night.

You don't have to let it sit. There's no point in doing at except for making sure the filter and heater works.

The tank is from Aqua Culture, and I got it from Walmart.

I only have one filter for it (it will be between the two dividers) so that will run as soon as everything is in :3
