I cycled by using pure ammonia from ace's hardware. I'll leave my betta tank set up just in case, but I'll wait a couple days to add him, just in case. Thanks for all your help!

The problem is meeting the bare requirements isn't always the best. Bettas can survive in .5 gallons just fine, but we like to give our bettas room and a big tank, so why skip out on other fish lol. Also, minimum isn't to aim for, you want more than bare because it will make them feel more comfortable and lead them to less likely terrorize your betta, I always recommend 8+ and some other members have agreed with me.

I would add your betta after a week so the neons feel comfortable in the tank and know where to go to escspe.

Chocolatebetta that doesn't make sense, neons aren't as active as zebra danios, and there is two types of 20 gallons, long and high, which is like a 10 gallon stacked on one another, it depends on activity levels.

Hi said next as in you will say they will. I know they need twenty gallons and are extremely active. Neons need twenty gallons minimum. Also most people say a .25 is fine which we all know is wrong just because the majority agree does not make it right. You always need at least minimum. And what happens if the Betta attacks them. Neons need a twenty possibly fifteen gallon minimum.

I understand, I think I'll definitely look into adding a couple more to the school, because I would prefer them to feel safe
