This is only my second real tank (I have 2 ghost shrimp in a temporary 1 gallon they will be added to this tank) and so it'll be the first tank I am going to have the chance to cycle correctly since my first tank was a betta in a 1 gallon bowl that I totally thought was okay! I've come a long way. So how should I cycle it properly with no fish? I have a 5 gallon established betta tank with 2 nerite snails but I don't really have enough filter media to add into the new tank because these stupid silent stream filters don't leave much to be desired and I've already popped out the carbon in the current one. the new tank is going to be a planted tank with fluorite substrate that's all I know so far I don't know what the tank mates will be for the ghost shrimp yet.
