We recently purchased a new tank for our betta, and added two neons, and a guppy in with him. All the fish seem to be doing fine. We added to bottle of bacteria which came with the tank as well. We are new to this, and don't really understand much about the whole cycling process and when it occurs. Our ammonia levels are currently between 0 and .25 ppm, and the tank has been set up for about a week now with the fish being put in on the third day. I know it is best to have the tank cycled before putting the fish in but. My question is, what exactly needs to be done to allow the tank to cycle. I guess where we are at now, we must do the fish in cycling, so should we be doing partial water changes daily? If so, for how long?
The tank also has a filter, heater, and 2 Amazon Swords. Any help would be great.
