I will eventually have it divided into two sections with 1 female Berta on each side along with 2 nerite snails. My filter is the aqua tech 5-15 power filter with bio fiber biological filtration. The only thread I've made regarding the cycling is titled "Fastest way to cycle a tank" located in the Betta bowl/habitat section.
Hello OFL. Ive recently started to cycle my 10 gallon tank fish-less. Yesterday I started with fish food.. The ammonia was hardly rising and it was very unsightly. Today I siphoned out (most) of the food and poured in a few ML's of ammonia (ace hardware brand) I measured and it is at 4 ppm.
When cycling, how much ammonia should I add per day? Is 4 ppm too low- or should I try to maintain that? At what point in the cycle should I stop adding ammonia?
Yeah, I just bought a vacuum and turkey baster finally and use it with every partial I do. Gosh, I guess I just hope I'm doing everything right for them. Sometimes the more I read the less confident I get lol. Both Buddy and Bella seem to be doing really well, so I need to trust myself more. Hugs for all your help and kindness!
Thanks so much OFL...sorry if it seems a silly question. I would have just posted it in a thread, but I would get so many opinions I would just get confused. I have learned a lot on this forum, but mostly I've learned to ask OFL first. Have a great evening!
We just got him day before yesterday, and got him in the new tank last night. When I took him out of the bowl he was in, I put him in his old cup with some of the bowl water...I then emptied some of the cup water and added some of the new water...both waters were same temp and ph as all my tanks, then added him to the new tank. Would a bubble stone help? I still don't understand the pellets sinking..weird.
Can you help me please? I have a new betta in 5.5 uncycled tank. Water temp 80, no filter, ph 7.6. He seems to be swimming fine, but won't eat. I have two fake plants in there from my other betta's 5g established tank. Besides not eating, the pellets are sinking? They float in Buddy's 5g, and in Bella's 1g bowl? Please any advice?
