I just setup a five gallon tank with Petco black sand, heater, filter, and an thermometer. I don't have a test kit, thought I could get one in maybe a few days. But I need to know how to cycle is fast, I have a twenty gallon tank that's been running for a while. Would adding some of the floss type stuff from the filter pad speed up the process? I also have a Rosy Red Minnow that didn't get eaten from my turtles, Would doing a fish less cycle be better or not? also how do I start the process, I've cycled tanks before but not for at least a year and have completely forgotten how to do it normally also. Please help me so I can get a beautiful Betta in the tank faster.
