Moonie was in a hospital tank due to fin rot yet now in the small space hes begun to tail bite and is doing some pretty bad damage to himself. I bought him a 10 gal last night at wally world, im hoping the space will help. I really need to get him into it though so im wondering, with it being planted with live plants, filtered and water changes provided, would I need to wait for a cycle or with the right correct water changes will we be okay? Im afraid if I wait the month for it to cycle we will end up with a fishie whos in pretty bad shape as far as fins go.
Also if anyone has suggestions as rushing a cycle Id love to hear succesful ideas!
If I dont cycle what water changes would be suggested?
Thoughts on cycling or not to cycle?
