Filter Cycle

Hi, ok i have a 10 gallon tank that i have been runny for about a day know but it has been used about a month ago and so has the filter an heater and i took it down cause i got a 20 gallon tank setup from petsmart (It was on Sale(LOL)) . Here are a few questions:

How long do have have to wait to put a betta fish in it?

Will a regular curly light bulb be a good source of light for some java fern and some java moss?

Is Aquabid.com a good website to buy bettas from?

Also what type of fish could I put with him?

Thank You have a Blessed Day

My new tank took 4-5 weeks to cycle. I waited until my tank fully cycled to buy my fishie. Do you have a test kit to test your water parameters? I use an API Freshwater Master Test Kit. It is very easy to use.

I use spiral bulbls in my hood. Make sure they are 6500K. I have two and they are 10 watts each. My java fern, nana petite and moss ball are doing fine.
