Okay guys... I had an embarrassing impulsive moment today and a really need some advice. I was at PetSmart today returning a filter that didn't fit correctly for what I needed. While I was there I needed to pick up some sponge media for my HOB
filter and a pre-filter sponge which they didn't have.
So I made my way over to PetCo for a simple pre-filter sponge. As I am about to make my way down the isle of filter media, I am stopped dead in my tracks by a Betta endcap.. It was there that I spotted the most beautiful male betta I have ever seen. A White Opal. I'm thinking to myself.. "He looks so pitiful and he has to come home with me.. but where will I put him?? I have one tank already inhabited with a male betta". I, of course then decided to buy a tank setup for him and purchased him as well. Now I am struggling with whether or not I should add him to his new home yet. Obviously the tank hasn't cycled. The new water has been treated, I rinsed everything and even smeared the new filter cartridge against my other thank's media. I put live plants in as well..
So here's my question.. would it be detrimental to put Opi (New Betta's name) in his new tank so soon? Or should I just leave him in that awful cup until tomorrow evening?
