also Alex,
Im pretty sure you can. It would probably speed you cycle up a lot.

Vikki, this is a very nice tank!! I have read mixed reviews with the cycle products. You could do fishless cycling and save yourself the money for the seachem product- here's a link:

Can't wait to see it set up!

sand is better than gravel?? I already have some gravel though, the kind in all my other tanks. If I get even more money, I'll think about it. I prefer gravel though.

nice tank! i would be very careful about choosing a proper stand. keep in mind that it must be able to withstand 500+ lbs. so anything made of particle board is no good.

i personally would not cycle a betta tank. it's expensive and not mandatory (imo). water test kits are ridiculously expensive. lets say you end up with high ammonia or nitrate, now what? i wouldnt want to invest even more money to properly treat it. if a betta can live off of conditioned tap water, there should not be any problems.
