Interesting thread below about filtration in a 2-gallon betta tank. It made me think of a question.
I went to another site that had a form for tiny tanks, and several of the members there said that they never cycle very small aquariums. Rather, they do 100 percent water changes all the time. At least one said that cycling in such a small tank is difficult and often not successful.
This seemed strange to me. Do people here cycle their tiny tanks? How long does it take, and what percentage of the water are you changing? Is there any merit at all to 100 percent water changes in tiny tanks? Isn't a cycled tank much easier on the fish? I'm thinking about a 2-gallon tank btw
. I have a HOB
palm filter (teeny tiny) and a 25 watt heater in there. Is it possible to cycle small tanks and make them stable for the long run with frequent partial water changes?
I'd really appreciate hearing any personal experiences, thoughts, or comments about this issue. Thanks.
