Hi, I am new to the hobby, I bought my son a 10g in April 2011, not knowing what i was doing i killed my share of fish. After doing some research I had an Ah-ha moment, and kind of started to figure out how to keep my fish alive, healthy and happy! Santa brought us a 29g for Christmas, and we are loving it. We are still waiting for it to cycle before we begin to stock. Let the fun begin!!! Oh yeah I am already considering a 5g betta tank!

welcome to the forum.

Cycling is VERY important, but there are was to quick cycle the tank. The #1 way is to have a spare filter handy for a change over ;)

I actually am using my filter and bio filter from my 10g and my LFS gave me a bag of water that they squeezed there bio filter in. I am Hoping this will give it a nice jump. I ordered a test kit that will be here in a couple of days so I can see where it's at :-D
