First of all, thank you to everyone on this forum because it has been helpful in setting up my five gallon tank for my betta and cycling it. I finally decided to register because of a bit of a problem.
I finally cycled my tank tonight, and did a weekly 10% water change, unfortunately I forgot to dechlorinate first in all my excitement. As soon as I realized what I had done I added the drop. My question is, could the chlorine in my tap water have killed off the bacteria that quickly? It was only a minute between adding the water and adding the drop.
Thank you to anyone who can add some insight so I know if I have to start all over again.
