The sales guy guessed that the tank was 7 gallons, but it came with a 5 gallon Elite Stingray filter - so the factory must be telling me it's 5.
In any case, if Alucard decides to jump, he's going to have to clear a 2" hurdle. Which, just to prove himself, he may just do.
Right now I'm concentrating on getting Alucard used to his new digs. I just bought that set up today. The Betta himself has only been with me for three days, so he's skittish with everything.
The stingray is running in the larger older cycled
tank right now. Hopefully after a few weeks it will have accumulated enough bacteria that I can transfer it over. I think I will steal the BioMax filter insert from there and plop it into the smaller 5 gallon. Hopefully that will help.
In any case, cycling a 5 gallon won't be too hard. I just have to keep an eye on the ammonia and the nitrate levels on a daily basis.
Bonus! The tank is hidey-hole enough that I've lost sight of my betta twice. And he likes the pirate skull!
