Help with my new guppies?
Hi!! I was hoping to get some help with my new guppies. I got them just yesterday. I have two males and they are currently in a 2-gallon filtered tank. I have a bigger, 5 gallon filtered tank that I would like to move them to, but I need some help.
Neither tank is new, so my first question is should I try cycling the new 5 gallon tank?
Also, what sort of heater do I need? I currently don't have one and my living space is fairly warm, but I don't want the little guys to get too cold.
And how much salt should i be adding? I added just one grain of aquarium salt to the 2 gallon tank. How much for the 5 gallon?
Last question. What sort of gravel should I get? Currently they have marbles and one tiny plant. Should I get regular gravel? And is this one plant enough?
Thank you very much for any feedback. :)
You need to cycle any tank unless you use a product like safe start
If the water can remain a constant temp of about 78 degrees then I wouldn't worry about a heater. If it doesn't you'll need a fairly small heater
guppies don't neccesarily need salt. but about a teaspoon is ok for five gallons
you can have as many plants as you want in the tank. Marbles are an ok substrate I think. I would personally rather use gravel or sand
