I was just reading the instructions about cycling a tank and had a question.
I just set up a 5gal for a new betta, (she is not in it yet. Just chillin in a bowl at the moment.) my other betta are in 2.5gal tanks. Can I use a little water from one of those tanks to "kick start" the cycling in the 5gal?
I have never had a problem with my smaller tanks, but my daughters new fish died within a week in the 5gal, eventhough I did everything the same as always. I wouldn't think there would be that much difference in the two sizes but just in case I am being careful and following guidlines closely.
Also I want to buy my own water testing kit instead of going to Petsmart all the time. I was confused on all the brands and types of kits. I am curious as to what bettafish.com members use. Thanks.
