Actually, cycling small tanks are quite easy, as long as you do the right changes. (: It's easier to do a fishless, so I would go to that route.

But I do agree, bigger tanks are easier to maintain.

From the experienced fish keepers I speak with, they say the smaller tanks are much more difficult(fishless or not) because there aren't many filters made for tanks smaller than 3 gallons. Tanks that come supplied(or that you can find filters for) are much easier to cycle because the filter holds most of the BB. I had a Tom Internal filter for my 2.5 gallon. I liked it alot and wish it never kicked the bucket. I cannot find it in stores anymore :(

You can order TOM filters ship to store from Wal-Mart.

Huh.

Why doesn't anyone use sponge filters? Great for colony media, current issues, and it's quiet. I thought they were the best filters; well, for long-finned fish that is.

Ohhh i love all the tanks in here! and now i dont feel so bad that i have all 3 of mine in "small"tanks. Sokka would probly do better in an even smaller tank than what he is in now, he seams daunted by all the space he has. Where my newest male Arii loves to dahs around his tank watching me walk around, he even flares at the cats. My lil girl Cameino is in a fish bowl and she loves it, constantly swimming and checking things out. so glad there are more people who have bettas in small tanks. Yeah its more work, but its worth it for me. I dont have to spend a lot of time looking for my bettas in a big tank this way.

Really? I hate having so many brands over one item. (toilet paper for example)

I heard so many good things about the azoo palms, I'm going to buy that soon. ^.^

For sponge filters the Tetra Whisper 10 air pump I find is nice and quiet. However I have heard the larger ones may be more noisy...

Wow really?! The ones (4..5...6? Lol) I had that were allowed in main rooms were those ones those ones because the old ones (old tetra ones xD) sounded like either beehives or metal clanging against a glass jar of pennies or something. Mine were barely a hum sound. Though as they got older they tended to get a little louder, and less strong.
