Today I bought a 10 gallon starter kit from Wal-Mart. I plan on starting to cycle it.
My friend has a betta fish, I'm going to ask if I can borrow something from her tank to help with the cycle. Should I only rely on that or should I still do the fish food cycle with it?
How often do I have to clean it? And I've seen "20% water changes" and things like that. Is that necessary with a filter? And how would I do water changes? Scoop some out with a bucket and then put some new water in?
Thanks in advance haha. x3
