Hello all I got another tank today. It's not not 55 gallon I was going to get, but this was was cheap with all the equipment so I grabbed it up while I had the chance. 55 gallon will be in a month or two. Anyways, the lady I got it from had it for close to a year and said none of the fish died while they had it. It was her son's and he wanted a dog instead. I didn't clean the gravel or the filter, I lightly wiped the inside. I would assume it was already cycled since she had it a year (not always the case I know) it had some algae in it. I added some water and siphoned what I could until it was clear. Algae isn't an issue for fish is it? Because knowing my luck, it will probably grow back. My real question is, how long will this new/used tank take to cycle? Will it be almost instant since she had it for awhile and I'm using the same gravel and filter? I'm going to do this right this time. Ordering my api master kit tonight and hopefully can add some beautiful fish soon. Step by step advice would be amazing thank you in advance!
