So SURPRISE my dad bought me a 3 gallon fish tank tonight for my birthday. I got it set up and running and the water's been treated and salted. I still need a heater and some decorations, but it's looking good.
I was wondering if I had to cycle it before I put him in there (I haven't yet, obviously) it's running a bubble stone/under gravel filter situation and in any case I was going to let it stew a day or so before transferring him over, but I wanted to make sure that was okay. I know I'm asking a lot of newb questions but I don't want to kill my fish :C
