Ok, so I am planning on buying the five-gallon kit from Walmart, now I'm just trying to make sure I have all the other necessary supplies. I'd like to get Amadeus out of his tiny tank and into this new one as soon as possible, so what is my best method for speeding up the cycling?
Also, any recommendations for what to use on the bottom? All the gravel I've seen feels too rough for betta fins, is there a better option?
Thanks!

My betta tank has some smallish pebbles, some pet stores will sell this kind of gravel. It looks great, too, and is fairly inexpensive.

Awesome, I'll keep an eye out for some little pebbles. I bought Amadeus a new filter today because I accidentally broke his UGF airstone, and I found an inexpensive mini-filter at Petsmart (Tom Aquarium Products Mini Internal Filter) that, amazingly, offers adjustable flow rate. I was worried it would be too strong even on the lowest setting because the one-gallon isn't very big, but Amadeus seems to be having a blast playing in the current. It came with a spray bar attachment which is great because it diffuses the flow a little more, and I really like it because the intake is super gentle. Also, it's for one to five gallon tanks, so I can move it to the five-gallon if I don't like the filter it comes with. Of course, I suppose I'll find out how well it actually works over the next few weeks...
