Hi people. I have never owned a betta fish before, but I am leaning towards getting one soon.
I just want to know, what do people mean by 'the tank fully cycled'?
What does it mean, how can you tell when it's happend and how do you make this happen?
I am getting a 15gal tank and I'm thinking of getting a male betta and 3 corydora or octo. catfish. Which would be better (or would both)? I'd also like to get a few more varieties of fish to live with the betta and 3 cory/octos, but I don't want breeding (unless the fish are really small) seeing as though the tank isn't the largest and I've not had ANY tropical fish before.
