How to Cycle Your Tank

Every betta requires a cycled tank. What does this mean?

Cycling a fish tank refers to the process of establishing beneficial bacteria colonies in the aquarium's filter and substrate to create a stable and healthy environment for fish and other aquatic organisms. Cycling is an essential step when setting up a new fish tank or when introducing new fish to an existing aquarium. It helps to establish a biological filtration system that converts toxic ammonia, produced by fish waste and uneaten food, into less harmful substances.
