the tank? Also, I think it would be better used for one of the bettas that you have in bowls...

also, don't get 2 guppies, only one cuz the females will already be pregnent and have babies, and the males will get aggresive with eachother.

I don't have a filter for my 4 gallon. I don't want to have to go through cycling.

Yeah, I know other fish do. I just don't want to go through all the hassle with my bettas. If it was necessary then I guess I'd have to. lol

If you want snails, make sure the tank is free of copper traces. Unchelated copper is dangerous to any invertebrates.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Ok thanks all. No no filter. Really, my bettas are fine where they are. bubble nests to prove it.

Do guppies *need* a filter? my mom said they used to have lots of them and they never had a filter for any of them...?

The fortunate thing out here is our water is different than most and doesn't have any chlorine, or very little, as little as they can get away with, and almost no minerals or anything added. almost plain all water

Thanks lupin, the snail won't be added for a while

Do i need to cycle the tank for guppies? no where else has mentioned it?
