I ordered my fluval flora tank!! I'm pretty excited! Ordered some aquaclear biomax filter media, water conditioner, complete water test kit, and some extra sponges to start. Also ordered some extra fluval plant stratum--decided to start with that as my substrate because I like the look of it.
Stuff should arrive by wednesday this week!
My next question is about cycling the tank.
My betta is currently in a bowl, I was thinking of using some of his water to help cycle the tank...maybe dipping the filter media bag into the water to get some bacteria then adding it to one of the filter slots.
I was also thinking of picking up one fish to use for cycling--like a cory or tetras...I want to keep tetras with my betta (hopefully he gets along with them, he's pretty mellow)
Should I wait until cycling is complete to plant some plants, or do some planting first?
