Help cycling a new tank? [R]

Hey everyone

Disclaimer: I am 100% new to this.

I got a 5 gallon tank, it came with a tetra whisper filter. I’ve read on here that the fastest way to cycle a new tank is with filter media from a cycled tank, so ideally I would want to get some from my LFS. The filter that came with it has a carbon cartridge, so what kind of media would I use and how do I incorporate it into my tank?

The filter also has replacements, but I’ve read now to replace the filter because that’s where all the beneficial bacteria is?

Thanks in advance!!

I’m planning to have a Betta. This is the tank I got:

Tetra Crescent Acrylic Aquarium Kit, Energy Efficient LEDs, 5-Gallon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00324X5L2/ref=cmswrcpapi_N2TQBbE6BH5DY

It came with the filter and the lid has a specific opening for it. If I got one that hung on the back, I’m worried it wouldn’t fit in the opening, maybe I’m overthinking it?

Moving my betta from a 2.5 gallon to a 5 gallon - is there anything I'm forgetting? [R]

Hey all! I'm finally moving my betta from a 2.5 gallon tank to a 5 gallon tank (thanks to reading /r/bettafish - oops) and I want to make sure I'm doing everything correctly.

  1. I'm going to buy new gravel cos I'm out of my old stuff - how much should actually go in the tank, and should I ever completely cycle it out? Just since I've noticed poop can get stuck in there and whatnot.
  2. How many plants/hiding spaces should I have? A while back I think I put too many in and my betta had no room to swim, so his current tank is a little more minimalist (I have two silk plants close together and one cave/hiding place). Will this change with a bigger tank? I assume so.
  3. On a related note, is there anything I should know about live planting? I'm thinking of buying one live plant when I go to the store today, just to try it out, and I've heard it can be pretty easy, since the plant shouldn't need much extra attention.
  4. What is y'all's feeding habits with betta? I usually feed mine once a day with about 5 betta pellets (he eats them all). If that seems like it's too little, it's because I accidentally overfed my last one and it killed him, so I'm erring on the side of caution. I read that this should be enough daily, but if not, PLEASE let me know. I don't want to starve my fish.
  5. Is it a huge deal to use live food for a betta? I'm a college student and this is on a budget, so the only variety I've got for him is some freeze dried bloodworm. Is this acceptable?

Thanks everyone! Please keep any criticism constructive because I'm still learning and I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing for my fish. :)

  1. Sounds good!
  2. Also sounds good
  3. I purchased this kit which supposedly has good lighting for plants.

  4. I will try that!

Fish for a beginner in college? [R]

Definitely don't get goldfish. They get huge (they're carp after all), and they're big waste producers that require a lot of filtration and cleaning. The thing about them only growing to the size of their container is a myth, that only happens sometimes when their growth gets stunted, most of the time they outgrow their tanks.

Unfortunately, there aren't really any fish you can get for under $20 and keep them healthy. The basic needs for all fish are heat, filtration, and space, and those basics are going to cost you at least $50 depending on the size of the tank. I think the best budget fish are probably bettas, since they're solitary and don't get very big, but they still do require a heated and filtered 5 gallon tank. You can get kits depending on what your budget is that come with lights and filters, and all you need to do is add a heater, like the Tetra Crescent and Marina LED kit. I had the Crescent for a betta back in college and it worked great as a started kit. The only thing I dislike about these kits is the filter cartridges you have to buy. They're easy for a beginner, but in the long run, not cheap.

I've grown attached to a Betta that my sister left with us last summer. So I want to take as best care as I can of him. Does he look in poor health? [R]

This is the tank I have. It's a 5 gallon that comes with a flow controlled filter. Keep it on low flow because bettas like calm water. Get a water heater and keep it plugged in. You don't have to necessarily get this aquarium but there are several tanks like it. 5 gallon tanks will be the easiest to take care of when it comes to water quality and not that much more expensive than a 2 or 3 gallon.

He has fin rot. Before going aquarium salt, keep him in clean, heated water and see if it recedes. Aquarium salt is tricky because high loads of it can damage the fish. Get a cave and silk plants. Do the panty hose test. If it tears panty hose, it will tear the fins of a betta fish. Don't keep the light on in the aquarium if he fights his reflection. This will stress him out constantly fighting a fish that isn't there.

Keep a check on your water parameters. Use water fix solution when adding new water to make it safe for him.

Betta fish like a calm, warm tank that is undisturbed by bubbles and high flow.

You can get all of these supplies from a local pet store or WalMart.

I have a 5 gallon tank with a filter and a heater. It stays out of the sunlight (sun can help encourage algae growth) though he does get natural light in the day. I do 30-50% water changes a week (and test regularly with strips to make sure the water is safe). I use water conditioner when adding more water.

Here is my tank that comes with a baffled filter. The filter is nice because you can adjust the flow. Keep it on low flow for your friend.

If your tank is big enough to support it, you can get yourself some algae eaters as well.

Might I suggest getting him a slightly larger home? I know larger setups are expensive, but a tank like this would make him much happier! :) This is the same 5g I have for my betta, and there's a 3g version of it too if 5g is too large for you. The tank comes with a filter. It's a great tank and my betta loves it! Good luck with Doug. :)

Looking to start an aquarium, I've never kept fish before but I'm very interested in taking up the hobby. I'm thinking the best place to start is with a small Beta tank?

A 5 gallon tank would be perfect, Most people would recommend a 10 gal because the more water you have the easier it is for a beginner, as mistakes like over feeding and over dosing chemical are not as harsh with a large volume of water.






My parents' betta fish isnt doing too well. Are there any starter kits that include a filter and heater and are reasonably priced? [R]

They've been busy in their personal lives and have neglected him. He's turned a sickly brownish color (originally blue) and sits at the bottom of the tank most of the time. I've got a budget of about $60 for this, if that helps.

I just recently purchased a new 5 Gallon tank from amazon along with this little 15 Watt heater, which would put you at just about $55. I definitely do suggest also getting Prime or something similar dechlorinate.

Any 5g+ kits that don't suck? [R]

Hello /r/aquariums, One of these days, I'll post all the tanks I've been building thanks to all your wonderful advice. It's taking time for things to get rolling. For now just more questions.

So I'm excited about building a 5g planted puffer tank. I would kind of like a more appealing tank than the standard rectangle (though I can deal with it in the end. Just doin' research.) but it seems like any kit would need me to replace the filter AND the light. Yuck. Alternatively, I have not yet found a place that sells a reasonable 5g cube or hex tank by itself or with a lid.

Is the Spec V okay? The fluval flora might be... excessive for what I'm trying to do, I only wanted low light easy maintenance plants. How about marineland tanks? I might need to replace any filter that isn't shrimp friendly as I like sponge filtration the best and want to be able to convert the tank to a shrimp tank if I wish.

Thanks as always.

I have a 5g Tetra cresent. It is nice and 5 gallons is very small for a small puffer fish.

I ordered a 5 gal tank for my betta that comes with LED lighting. I currently have a .5 gal but I wanted to upgrade his living situation.

I was wondering how I would go about picking plants. Should I get live ones or silk?

I do not have any experience so any tips would be great.

Wow this was an awesome response. I feel bad for not typing out something huge in my reply. The tank I ordered is this tetra crescent 5 gal from amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Tetra-Crescent-Aquarium-Kit-5-Gallon/dp/B00324X5L2/ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&qid=1397015200&sr=8-1&keywords=tetra+crescent

From the manufacturers website the rep says the light is around 5000K so I am at the bottom of your scale.

Tank comes with a filter I also ordered a 25 watt heater and a digital thermometer.

I got the kit at Petsmart, but it's widely available. [Here you go!] (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00324X5L2)

It is currently (over)stocked with 6 serpae tetras, 1 zebra danio, and 1 green cory. In a month or so it's going to be broken down when I transition to a larger tank, and will be restocked with one betta and one peppered cory, much more in line with its capacity.

I'm running the stock lights and in-tank filter, though I'm eyeing the Azoo Mignon 60, as supposedly it will fit this tank and free up some space/look better IMHO. Running an airstone off a Whisper pump, too.
