New Tank?

Hey all,
I will soon be upgrading to this tank http://www.southwestpets.com.au/Fish...lashAqKit.html

and am also purchasing a bottle of bio booster which is supposed to speed up the cycling process.
the tank is 14 L or just about 3.7 gallons is this a good size for a betta.
if anyone has had any experience with bio booster any help would be great.

Ryan

3.7g sounds legit. What brand exactly is this bio-booster?

I recently bought this tank only a bit bigger and am cycling it now seems sturdy enough and appropriate for a betta :) are bio boosters any good? Ive never seen them before

Wow, $70 for a 3.7G? That's really expensive IMO. But hey, if you have the money for it and it's a good brand, why not? Good luck!

yay piccies!! I love oogling at other peoples set ups ;)

I'm actually going terrible at cycling my tank I think my ammonia levels might be too high I'm not very good at matching colours on the indicator (thank god I'm not colour blind! Could you imagine?) something you should know which woud have been handy before you ordered it is that the tank is acrylic sorry if I should have mentioned that, just assumed you went to a store :S
