Both my bf and I had live in there! :D I had annubias and now have anarchis all wound up, it looks cool and is a fun place for them to weave in and out and sleep.
I use marbles. Its a personal preference, though. If you do do the 100%, I got one of those children's cruddy beach toy sifters and use that to get rid of the poops and clean the marbles/gravel! :D

any tank can be cycled if you use the right materials and know how to protect the bacterial substrate.

Most people who don't think their tank HAS a cycle or cycled are cycled.

Like I say, it WILL happen whether you want it to or not, know it or not.

How would I go about cycling a 1.5g then? Out of curiosity sake at this point.

I'll include that I believe.

The trick is appropriate bio-media surface area to a given tank. I'll cheat a little using a bio-ball in the pre-filter but its a sterile one, fresh from box.


Nitrite cycle bio-filtration is simply the addition and sustainment of what are effectively inches of anti-fish in the tank.

The old rules about inches per gallon have to do with the available surface area and effectiveness of under-gravel filters... which suck, tbh.

Beautiful boys you got there! Not sure if anyone mentioned it or not but get a test kit so you can check the water levels although I am not sure if its nessary with a small tank and many water changes....all my tanks are big oh I was gonna say later on if you wanted you could split a larger tank instead of buying multiples. Just keep in mind this hobby is addicting I learned the hard way lol

I already know it's addicting especially when I stumbled on aquabid, sooo many pretty ones! An I know you can split the tanks. But if I can manage it I would still like to have my guys in five gallon tanks. At least my first two. From there as I get more I'm sure I'll be splitting tanks haha but if I have two in their own tanks maybe it'll incline me not to get too many... >> yea huh
