Growing up I always kept little pets like goldfish in a bowl at home. Now that I'm grown, I have recently gotten back into fish and aquariums. After moving to college I decided to get a fish with my boyfriend and initially we were going to get two goldfish because they are inexpensive and relatively easy to care for pets. After picking out a tank that came with a filter and lighting we went to pick out our fish and were asked what type we were looking for. After stating that we would like 2 goldfish it was recommended to us that goldfish would not do well in this tank and that we would find ourselves cleaning it constantly. So we went with a betta fish. Our first betta was great and healthy and active and now we have moved on to extending our family. Just yesterday we bought a baby betta and two amano shrimp that are currently living in my 2 gallon tank in my dorm. They get along great and all parties are thriving. The shrimp do a great job of keeping my tank clean and eating all the extra brine shrimp that my betta fry misses. I decided today that I was going to upgrade to a 5.5 gallon tank and so I got a filter, more gravel substrate, more plants [live and silk] and some more hiding places [I know my betta's love them]. The baby and my two shrimp are still in my 2 gallon tank and my new tank is cycling with and preparing for my baby and shrimp to go into. Soon the new 5.5g tank will have been cycling for 24 hours and I will retest the water[To help the bacteria build up I added a little of the tank water from the tank my betta lives in to my new tank] and add a heater to get it to the same temperature as my 2g. Tomorrow if water testing and heating goes well, will it be safe for me to transfer my baby and shrimp. My main concern is my baby betta fry-- I do not want to stress him out. So my question is will it be safe to move him tomorrow if all testing and heating goes well? Any suggestions or tips? If I left out any information let me know! Thanks! I'll try and post pictures of the current tank and new tank and my fish and amanos if I get a chance!
