Today we went to a PetSmart store that was quite far away from our house, but it was a huge PetSmart.
Saw this 10 gallon tank that was unbelievably cheap, Canada doesn't have cheap tanks. It came with a Tetra Whisper Internal Filter, and a hood with lights.
Now I also bought a heater which is the Elite Submersible 50w heater which is supposedly for 15 gallons but it's adjustable and winter here is really cold. I also got Stability by Seachem, apparently that will help it cycle. I'm not sure. Also I added in Geo Aquarium Substrate, made my water so cloudy, anyway to get ride of the cloudy-ness? I like strained and cleaned the gravel several times before added it into the tank, still cloudy.
Do I need to use something else for it to cycle or will just following the instructions will cycle the tank?
Also, I'm planning on putting in my Betta in, and along with some tetras, shrimps, those algae eating fishies (dunno what they're called), and some live plants.
Recommended number of each type of fish to get? Along with how much water should I change? And I do have a gravel vacuum, so I will use that from time to time.
Thanks for the help in advance.
