It seems my ACE Hardware is sold out of ammonia, they'll have some more in on Wednesday. So for now I guess I'll just leave my filter plugged in to run until then, doesn't seem to be hurting anything.
However, the instructions on the blue fuzzy filter pad (whatever it's ACTUALLY called, lol) said to change it every few weeks. Assuming my cycle is done in about 2 weeks, will I have to change that pad before I put the fish in?
They had some really pretty bettas at Petsmart today, and they looked pretty healthy. :( Can't get one yet, though, but I got some cool roman column decorations to put in there for now.
