A beta fish was donated to where I work and it has been kept in a small bowl for almost a year by his previous owners. I immediately went and bought a 5 gallon tank, filter, heater, some live plants, and a cave for him. However, I am new to cycling a tank and I’m not sure if it would be healthier for him to stay in his 1/2 gallon bowl or move him to the tank while it cycles. I know it is not preferable to do in-fish cycling, but I don’t know if staying in his bowl is better or not. Any suggestions? I attached a picture of his current bowl and a picture of the tank I am moving him into. Any suggestions on how to make the tank better are welcome as well! Thank you!
