Hi guys, I'm back with another question! xD A week or so ago I posted a question on my betta's tail-biting and why. I took out the sharp plastic plants that could hurt him, and decided to move him to a bigger tank after all, giving me the room to put in some silk plant decor and more hiding spaces for him. I filled the tank with tap water then added half of his old tank water. Now I have him in a little bowl next to his new tank awaiting the time he gets to move in...but there in lies my question.
How long do I have to let a 10g tank cycle?
Also, I've read a lot of mixed feed back on water movement and filters and bubblers...in a 10g tank should I use the filter it came with (an Aqua-Tech Power Filterm model5-15)? Or should I try to find something less powerful? He didn't seem to mind the filter that came with his 2.5g tank at all, even used it to surf a little and let food come to him.
Here's the new tank and set-up...
And here he is, dodging my camera for all but this shot next to his new tank.
