So I got two beautiful veiltails at Meijer about 3 months ago and at first had them in one of those puny double sided container things. Yeah, I know, but I didn't know any better at the time. Then I moved them into one gallon bowls, and now I'm planning on moving them next week into an old 10 gallon tank and dividing it. So my question is, what all do I need to do to this tank? I know I should get a heater. Filters, I'm a bit confused about. I've heard some people use them, others don't. How often should I do a water change? And what exactly is cycling? And do I need to do it?
Sorry with all the questions, but after doing some research, I'm feeling pretty overwhelmed and I wanna make sure my bettas are happy.
