None of those "instant cycle" or "will jumpstart your cycle" things actually work or so many people on here claim. NEver hard of the marineland one though.
There are a few pwople on here that keep african dwarf frogs with bettas, i'm not one of them though. Never seen them for sale
Even with a cycled tank, you still should be doing a weekly water change and gravel vaccume.
There really is no way to cycle a tank without changing the water or getting an ammonia AND nitrIte spike unless you do a natural planted tank and that requires a certain amount of the right type of plants. Once the tank is cycled (no plants), you still need to remove the nitrAtes and the only way is via water changes.
what, exactly is wrong with your tap water? Unless its toxic, water conditioner will make it safe for fish.
