Hello everyone! This is my first post here!
Here is my set up: Eclipse System 3
I am going to get a Java Fern to put to the right of the lantern. I plan on cycling this tank before I choose a Betta. So, that brings me to my first question:
Can I add the plant now and cycle with it in there? If not when is the best time to add the plant?
As far as cycling goes I am going to follow these guidlines:
That site says use 5 drops of ammonia per gallon. That would be 15 drops for this tank. That sounds like a lot. Is it?
Cycling takes a while but I want to do this right so that my fish will be healthy!
Today I'm going to get my heater, test kit, maybe a plant, and some water. I have to use bottled water in the tank because our tap water is evil!
I'm really getting excited about my new fish! Any advice is welcome! Thanks
