Usually takes a few weeks for cycling.. a little less if you are able to get rocks or plants from an already cycled tank, etc.
Too long and boring to go into it now.. you got me dreaming of a spare 40gal tank.

I love my bettas.. but I'd have to do another African Cichlid tank. :D

Cycling is leaving a tank running between 4-6 weeks... usually people add fish food (ammonia), or raw shrimp (I dunno about that one). Bettas are pretty good in uncycled water as long as there are more water changes :) hence why bowls are "okay"... with proper care.

Haha my brother said he wanted to start something small for his kids... so I asked what... he says.. "I dunno. maybe a 100 gallon tank full of cichlids." me: "..."

Thats good, I dont mind doing extra water changes, and I REALLY dont want to wait another month to put my fish in the tank XD

Im so impatient LOL



XD
I hope someday that I can look at a 100g tank and think of it as small, since thatll mean I have an even bigger one to compare it too <3

I know right!!! XDD yeah I have bowls, containers, and tanks. :p I still prefer cycled tanks because it's less water changes LOL! But, that's okay I still do them :)

Yep!
And since this tank will be divided, it'll be easier to do them, just scoop a boy out and take the water from that side of the tank XD

well there ya go xD it'll work lol. Btw, that tank WILL end up cycling x)just you are going to be doing a fish cycle... meaning, you have the fish (their waste mainly) as the source of ammonia. So technically, if you do the water changes, it'll actually end up cycling...

This is my second time getting bitten ;A;

My first time I ended up with 12, but I was new to them and had them all in those small betta keepers.

This time I'm doing it right, and I know I'm STILL going to end up with so many more than I should have LOL



Baw, you have baby ones?
What are you planning on doing with them?
I'd breed if I had the know-how or the room XD
