@Robbo The way I understand safe start: You add it now, keep feeding your tank daily as if you had fish, test the waters (ammonia no's) and once they rise & fall again, your safe to stock.
No the betta wouldn't eat your Neon's....but if Neon's is what you really want, just wait, give the tank time to cycle and then buy your Neons. Once your heater reaches the desired temp it'll only kick on to reheat quick, you'll do fine. When you then do water exchanges laer on just judge the tap water that you need to replace tank water with by hand and have it in the bucket for refill warmish rather then using ice cold water (better on the fish to replace with more or less same temp).
thanks for the advice, tbh both fish are something ive always fancied so i may go for both now knowing that they can get along...
and sorry for so many questions, i just wanna make sure i get this right! it will be atleast next weekend before i venture out for any fish (depeding on test results, when the kit of ebay arrives!...)so hopefully this will be enough time to get things prepared.
