Right now my newly acquired betta is in a half gallon covered vase. Every other day I change his water with the same temperature water that has prime in it. I am getting him a 5 gallon heated and filtered tank in a few days.
Now my question is, should I put him in the uncycled tank or will he be all right in the vase till the new tank is cycled?
Also, how do I go about cycling a tank with and/or without fish, need to know how to do it both ways. I know for fishless cycling you need pure ammonia. Where would I get that? And do you need to do water changes and gravel cleaning while doing a fishless cycling? Or one with fish for that matter?
Sorry so many questions. I'm fairly new to fishkeeping. =/ Thanks for any help and replies!
