HI everyone. My Betta has been living in a 1 gallon bowl (I didn't know!) for about a month now. He is very happy in it, but I just bought a 10 gallon tank for him. However, I am not sure what is the fastest way to cycle the tank so he can get out of the bowl ASAP. I do regular water changes in the bowl (every day to every other day). The tank's filter is on. Should I simply put in some of his food in the tank and wait for the ammonia spikes (w/o fish)? I was thinking that I could add the bowl water to the tank whenever I do a water change (so I put the bowl water in the tank instead of throwing it out). Would Merlin, by himself, produce enough ammonia in the one gallon bowl to rapidly make a bacterial colony? Also, which way would be faster? The filter flows through 90 GPH. In addition, how long would YOU say it would take for the tank to be fully cycled? I really don't want to add Merlin to the tank until its cycled because I don't want to stress him. Thank you.
