I might end up going to the pet store tomorrow; if I got some gravel from one of their fish tanks, would it help my cycle? I read somewhere that fish stores will sometimes give you a bit of gravel if you ask. The tanks that have fish in them look very healthy, as do the fish themselves. The people who work there seem pretty smart as far as fish related things. Do you think they'll look at me funny if I ask for some gravel? Have you ever done this? Should I bring a small cup or something? I figure that a little bit of gravel from what I guess is an established tank will help me out. Which brings up another question- how long will it take with established gravel to maybe cycle my tank? You're all probably tired of me, but I've got to ask. xD Thanks!
