Okay so I started shrimp cycling my tank about 5 days ago. Ammonia is up and nitrites have started to go up about one day go. I fell in love with a betta on Aquabid from Greatbettas and didn't want to lose him so I bid on him. Anyways, the auction ended today and the shipping date is the January 9, so the earliest the betta would arrive is maybe January 11. Is there anyway the tank could be finished by the time he arrives? If not, what do I do? I know you can use fish to cycle the tank but that can hurt them and I don't want to do that.
