So I've decided to purchase either a 1.5 or a 2.5 (hopefully the 2.5) gallon tank for my betta who's currently living in a bowl. I've looked up on several different sites on how to do a fishless cycle, but some of them have stated that it's really hard or impossible to cycle a small tank.
If this is so, then what should I do? I'm going to try anyway, but what should I do if I can't seem to cycle it? Will it take less time to cycle since it's so small?
I'm hoping to go to the store this weekend to buy the tank and other supplies, but should I get ammonia to cycle the tank too? I've also got access to an established tank that I can take some gravel from to help. I'm so confused!
