How long should tank cycle. He was in a bowl from pet store I let it floatThe tank was not cycled and leaving him in the bag for an hour like that probably resulted in a high level of oxygen depletion.
Any other thoughts or do’s and dont’sHow long should tank cycle. He was in a bowl from pet store I let it float
If you can get a bigger tank that would be ideal (not the cuase the the betta died), as 2.5 gal is really not good for any fish at all. I also use Seachem Prime as my water conditioner.Any other thoughts or do’s and dont’s
This is what I meant by bigger tank can be better, on such a small tank and not cycled water parameters can swing very fast and can be harmful to fish, specially when you accidentally overfeed.
Letting it cycle longer will keep ammonia levels down.i boutght a 2.5 gallon Betta tank with small filter for my son. Put water and conditioner for Berta’s in the water filled it let it cycle had a heater set at 78. Let cycle for 24 hours. Bought fish let bag sit for hour two days later fish was dead what did I do wrong?
