Nano tank help
I'm thinking of getting a nano tank set up in my cubicle. I'm just getting back into the hobby of owning bettas so I'm a bit rusty and I need help and advice on how to get this started.
We currently have one betta in a 2.5 gal at home for my 3 yr old and I've been doing weekly 50% water changes. Is that adequate or should I bump it up to do a full 100% weekly water change? It has a filter, but I doubt it's cycled, since we barely got this two weeks ago. There aren't any live plants in that one.
Going back to the tank for work, I was looking into the Fluval spec 2. If I go that route, is it best to get it cycled with only plants first before I add a betta? I don't even remember how to get a tank cycled. I feel like such a newbie again. I have more questions, but I'll start with these first.
Any advice or help is appreciated. Thanks!
