Alright. I'm cleaning out the old gerbil things today, and hopefully it'll be up and cycling by Monday. At least it'll be kickstarted by the time I get a heater or a test kit. I'm really stumped as to what to use for an ammonia source, though o.o

You can put fish food in it and just it rot. It'll make ammonia.

Sounds simple enough :) just feed the tank at the same time I feed Comet. Thanks so much for your help, guys! I'll be around ;)

Lol. Yep! I wouldn't put too much in though. Like 10-20 pellets should be good.

Oh, alright. Haha, I feel like Comet's is going to get quite spoiled having a big 10 gallon all to himself. Maybe I'll rescue my brother's poor betta and divide the tank. He's been living in a little bowl with no heater, filter, water changes or anything, poor dear ;c

Yes :D Although, he seems a tad sick. I'm sure that if I "adopt" him, and start doing the water changes etc. he'll get better. He has pale spots on his fins, but we'll see what happens.

Pale spots? He could just be stressed and losing color..

True. It looks like the plant he's with is shredding his tail... But I have a problem. There's no way to get him out of the bowl, because the opening's too small to get a net in. He's not exactly happy, either, because he just flares at me and glares whenever he sees me.

Then fill a cup or jar or something with water and pour him into it.

If you can't get a net it, THAT is insanely small. How many gallons is it?
