Pretty betta. I have read that if you already have a cycled tank you can squeeze the filter sponge/cartridge into the new one and that will start the process and should make things go quickly. When I started my 125 gal, I put the fiber part of a used cartridge in the new filter and never had a problem. I did use Prime but I'm not really sure if I needed it. I just started two 2.5 gal betta tanks yesterday and I squeezed the cartridge on the new one but I'm going to try without the Prime. I'm going to test daily to make sure everything is going well.
