Another update: Due to an erratic work schedule, this tank has been neglected and I've had to start cycling all over again. So no fish yet. I now keep a spreadsheet in Excel on the progress of this tank, my 5.5 gallon, and my son's 10 gallon guppy tank. Good news, I have successfully cycled the 5.5 gallon and have added my new Betta Buddy! I posted a picture of him in the Betta Photo Gallery. He can reside in his little 5.5 gal condo until the 10 gal is ready. He is a blue and red veil tail that I rescued from PetSmart. When I picked up his little cup to take a look at him, he looked right back as if to say, "So, are you taking me home or what?" So now Buddy is the new addition to the family. I posted a picture of him in the Betta Photo Gallery. He was in a 1 gal fish bowl for about 10 days until the 5.5 gal was ready. I just put him in there today, and he sure looks happy! So the plans for the 10 gal are to hopefully add some peaceful community fish, and then add Buddy. We'll see how it goes.
