Is it true that you don’t NEED to cycle a filtered tank for Bettas? I’m getting a 10 gallon tank tomorrow and do plan on cycling before adding fish, but how long do you suggest it cycles for?
Until it’s finished cycling! Probbaly a few weeks
Tough to say. It will be done when it’s done. Sometimes a couple of weeks, sometimes up to a couple of months.
Cycling isn’t just “x” amount of time letting the filter run. It is the growth and establishment of Beneficial Bacteria(Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter) into an aquarium, primarily the filter, substrate, and some decorations.
I plan on getting some bacteria to add to the tank to help the process.
