I already have he dechlorinator, test kit, and food. Sorry I didn't mention that. I have big packs or everything so they will last longer. I have 2 betta food pellet bottles. ( I'm gonna put my betta in the new five gallon). So I already have my 1st fish, food, and dechlorinator. I might get a plant but one of my plants keeps falling apart ( the clip that holds it together isnt strong enough) so I might just use one of the parts of the plant. Do you think I need a CO2
unit? I don't think I'll need one for oneplant but I might add more.. I have three plants in my ten gallon without a CO2
unit and they do fine. I plan on cycling it somehow but in a book I bought it said that if you do fishless, it's bad to do with fish food because the decomposers that break it down can be harmful. I will get a thermometer, but I already have the bucket and gravel vacuum. I have a fish net but I'm gonna get another one because the one I have is tiny ( it's a brine shrimp net) and i need another one anyway.
