Cycling A Betta Fish Tank (Episode 4)

How to cycle a tank. Cycling a Betta fish takes time and patience. Cycling a tank is important as you need the beneficial bacteria to build up in the tank making the water safe for fish. To begin cycling a tank you need to add an ammonia source. That can be put ammonia or fish food. If your adding pure ammonia you need to follow the direction on the bottle. If you're using fish feed, we added a pinch of food every other day. We added Seachem Stability to the tank as directed on the bottle. We did one water change during the cycle. The tank cycled in 3 weeks.

Hello
Thank you for your video
Unfortunately because of my ignorance I didn’t know that we need to do this before
My BF got me a betta fish, so that day I went and bought a tank with a kit
So I installed everything and I add the liquid for clear water, the liquid for the chlorine removal and the liquid for the cycle and I added my fish ☹️, that was yesterday.... what’s going to happen? Is he going to die?

Once, when setting the tank up it will take 3-6 weeks to cycle.

When you test the water you should have ammonia reading, as the cycle progresses you will then see nitrite and then nitrate.

Donya Lane
Donya Lane - 2 years ago
I'm new to the pet fish/aquarium world. I have had some confusion about the instructions on the Stability bottle. First it says to turn off UV/ozone. Does that mean your lights? Then, it says 5 mL "for each" 10 gallons on day one, followed by 5mL "for each" 20 gallons over the next 7 days. My two tanks are only 3 and 3.5 gallons, respectively. Am I still supposed to use the same amount, even though my tanks are that much smaller? If the instructions were worded, "up to 10 gallons," for example, I would not have this confusion.
I was afraid to put the full dose in my small tanks (I have only put half a capful in daily). So far, my betta fish (and a snail) seem happy and healthy, but could you explain this for future reference? Thank you!
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago

Understood. Thank you so much. I didn't realize I needed to also be good at math to keep pet fish! LOL
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
Ok, so it’s like I said. You need to reduce the quantity down to your tank size. My tank was 5.5 gallons so I used a quarter of that they said for each of the 7 days.
Donya Lane
Donya Lane - 2 years ago
Thank you for your reply. The product I was confused about is in your video at 4:25.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
You can leave your lights on when adding the stability. Without seeing the bottle I can’t really advise but if for day two onwards it’s 5 ml per 20 gallons then you’d need to reduce that for the size of your tank. For example if the tank was 10 gallons you’d put in 2.5ml and so on.

My tank has been cycling for two weeks now, I think it's almost done cycling now. Is it normal that there is a film on the water surface?

Hi, I am so thankful for ur video it actually made me refresh some info from when I had a fish tank, many years ago I didn’t know a thing and did a fish in cycle... after many years naw I have started a new tank, I’m on day 3 my water readings are ph:7.6 blue ammonia:0.25 Nitrites:0.25 Nitrates:10. I am dosing with stability everyday feeding the tank with fish food but to me that is not a normal reading... can you help me with this please? For me it looks like it is too soon to change the water what do u think?
Corpse Bride
Corpse Bride - 2 years ago
Should I add the fish food until the cycle is complete or do I stop once I get a ammonia readjng
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
You continue to add fish food.
That Ninja Pons
That Ninja Pons - 2 years ago
I’ve watched your video about 20 times and it is the best how to cycle your tank video I’ve searched. However I’ve been cycling my tank for just under two weeks and I still do not have any trace of nitrites. The ammonia level has been at 4ppm for the past week. I’ve been adding Seachem Stability everyday for the first 7 days as well as the past 3 days but still no nitrates in sight. I understand that cycling a tank is all about patience but I was wondering if I am doing something wrong or if there’s anything else I can do to produce nitrites. I have not done a water change yet.
That Ninja Pons
That Ninja Pons - 2 years ago
Lifewithpets No, I just did those initial drops to get the ammonia level past 4 ppm. I have not added any additional drops since I got to that level because I was hoping that would be enough “food” for the beneficial bacteria and I would start seeing nitrites.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
Are you doing 5-6 drops a day?
That Ninja Pons
That Ninja Pons - 2 years ago
Lifewithpets Once again thank you for your response. I was starting to think I might have been doing something wrong. I’ve been looking at Bettas from Creative Pet Keeping and Momo Bettas which doesn’t help with the waiting process!
I’ll do a ten percent water change and continue to be patient!
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
All sounds good.
That Ninja Pons
That Ninja Pons - 2 years ago
Lifewithpets 5 to 6 drops of janitorial strength ammonia hydroxide from Ace Hardware. I am cycling a new Fluval Spec V planted tank.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
Yes. What are you using as your ammonia source?
That Ninja Pons
That Ninja Pons - 2 years ago
Lifewithpets Should I add Seachem Prime with the small water change?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
Keep doing what you're doing, it takes time. I'd do a small water changes.

Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
Unfortunately it's all about patience, it sounds like it's progressing. Do you not have nitrites or nitrates?
Margie Cooper
Margie Cooper - 2 years ago
Hi! First of all, this video is so thorough and easy to understand - thank you! Secondly, I've been trying to cycle my tank for a bit over a month at this point. I've treated the water correctly, used QuickStart, added an ammonia source (fish food), etc. However, my weekly water tests pretty much never change. I have zeros across the board. Any ideas as to why that may be? Any ideas as to how I can make certain my tank is cycling/cycled?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
Thank you. For the tank to be cycling it has to go through the cycle of ammonia, nitrite and nitrate if it hasn't done that it's very unlikely it's cycled.
charlene cipriani
charlene cipriani - 2 years ago
You don't talk about the ph or the high range ph can you explain them to me . Do you test the ph?
Lifewithpets

I'm sorry but I don't really do pH. I occasionally test it, but it's not something I pay much attention to.

How often to you have to cycle your tank?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
You only cycle a tank when it is first set up. After that as long as the tank is maintained then the tank should run smoothly.

Daniel Angelov
Daniel Angelov - 2 years ago
So can I cycle my tank just by letting the filter run (I have a 3.5 gallon tank) or can I speed up the process by adding fish food every day while letting the filter go and how long will each take?
Daniel Angelov
Daniel Angelov - 2 years ago
Thank you for all the useful info and I will definitely buy or borrow the testing kit to properly cycle my tank. You are a life saver!
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
Not really you need the test kit to know where the cycle is up to and it helps you know how much food to put in and when to back off adding food. Each tank is different so it may take longer or a little shorter but only a test kit can tell you that.
Daniel Angelov
Daniel Angelov - 2 years ago
Lifewithpets conditioner every week*** Is it possible to do the cycling without a testing kit and wait 4-5 weeks and do a water change around the 2nd or 3rd week?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
Conditioner every day, why? We do fish food every other day and I would only do a water change once you start to see some nitrites in your tank when you test the water.
Daniel Angelov
Daniel Angelov - 2 years ago
I am willing to wait 4-5 weeks for the tank to be cycled, but will all I have to do is put fish food in everyday or would I also have to use conditioner every day and do weekly water changes (btw this is my last question and I'm sorry to waste your time)
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 2 years ago
No, you need to add a source of ammonia so the bacteria have something to feed on. The process took 3 weeks for us but that included using stability, this will speed up the process. Without it and just using fish food it usually takes 4-5 weeks.
Daniel Angelov
Daniel Angelov - 2 years ago
Btw I don't have a testing kit so can I cycle without it just with conditioner, giving the fish food everyday, and with a filter?

Hi, iv'e been cycling my 5 gallon betta tank for a week now. I started with 0.25 ammonia (just from my tap water) and ive been adding a pinch of fish flakes everyday but my ammonia is still at 0.25 and isn't budging at all ? is this a problem ? how long will it take for my ammonia to start going up ? Thanks :)
Matt Yeow
Matt Yeow - 3 years ago
Newbie here. I was misinformed by the aquarium store and put a betta fish in a 3 gallon tank without cycling it! The only thing I used was Prime. He seems fine... swimming around and eating as per normal. Should I be concerned? Should I rush out to buy Stability or Betta Basics?
Matt Yeow
Matt Yeow - 3 years ago
I do appreciate your response. Thanks!
georc16
georc16 - 3 years ago
I would. I did the same thing. I didn't learn about cycling a tank til after I set up my aquarium x.x But you'll still want it to be cycled in the long run. Getting a bacteria supplement would be better late than never imo. You'd be doing a fish-in cycling. Just stay on top of your water changes and tests and it should be fine. Bettas are hardy fish.

Just giving my thoughts since no one else has on this comment which seems to be pretty time-sensitive and requires an answer, but if anyone a little more experienced with the hobby wanted to weigh in, I'm sure it'd be appreciated.
Corpse Bride
Corpse Bride - 3 years ago
Do you need to add the stability when you change the water once the fish is inside
Danielle G
Danielle G - 3 years ago
Do I have to fully re-cycle a 5.5 gallon single betta tank if I'm moving (the move is about 1 hour away, so I am assuming the tank will be down for about 3 hours) or do you think filling 2-3 milk bottles of the old water before I drain it help?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 3 years ago
It would be better to preserve the filter media in tank water. There is little bacteria in the water column so saving the tank water won't make much difference.

That sound about right. Depending on the how stoked the tank is you may be able to go 4-6 weeks without changing it.

I want to know which Betta I am getting for sure before I set up my tank, but I don't know how I would keep it before my tank is finished cycling. Any suggestions on what I should do?
Warrior Lover
Warrior Lover - 3 years ago
What I have decided to do is set up the tank designed for a certain color of betta(red themed for example), and let the tank cycle before looking for a fish that would fit.
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 3 years ago
If you were going to keep it in a tank that wasn't cycled as long as you did 80-100% water changes every 2-3 days it should be ok. It's just a big commitment.

I have a new 5 gallon tank that I've been cycling for 6 days. I have 1 ppm of ammonia and 0 ppm of nitrite and nitrate, but my water is cloudy. Others have told me the cloudiness is a bacteria bloom. I've been adding 1/4 tsp of Stability everyday, and a pinch of food everyday. Am I cycling my tank correctly?
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 3 years ago
Yes, it sounds like the cycle is well on its way. I would maybe add a little more food.

I have a 36 gal planted aquarium that I'm starting to lose hope in. I cycled it and then moved my fish in once it was done. All of the original fish were fine until I added more last week. I added a guppy and 3 kuhli loaches. The next day one of my F gups was dead, the new M guppy was dead the next, and then I slowly lost the loaches. Today I lost another F guppy that I've had for a long time. They're dropping like flies!! I don't see anything visibly wrong with them and I've done a 30% water change 3 times since they started dying. The water had an ammonia spike but the water changes helped lower it to .25 ppm but they keep dying on me. Nitrites and nitrates are good. Do you have any idea what could be wrong?
Emily Brown
Emily Brown - 3 years ago
Lifewithpets thank you!
Lifewithpets
Lifewithpets - 3 years ago
It sounds like the tank had enough bacteria to take care of the fish in the tank but had not built up enough for the extra fish causing an ammonia spike. Keep doing regular small water changes till your back to no ammonia. Only add 2-3 fish every few weeks. This helps the bacteria keep up as you add more fish. Don't lose heart it takes time and patience and once it's done it will be very rewarding.

Great info! I made the mistake of buying a beautiful betta from a filthy cup in a pet store and not having any tank ready I bought a new tank and filter and put him in same time. Needless to say it was checking water for ammonia and nitrite every day plus daily water changes sometimes 2 or 3 water changes every day until the nitrites and ammonia were finally down to 0. This took five weeks. Not only was it a lot of work and stress every day for me it was stressful on the little guy. He is now doing so well and healthy and tank cycled. But I will never ever do that again. Your video is informative and so easy to understand. Next time I will have tank cycled before I put a betta in. Thank you again!

Hi! I recently tested the tap water that i use for water changes. I tested the PH and the Ammonia.
The pH was around 8 and the ammonia was 0.25ppm ~
I use a water conditioner which said to remove up to 1.0ppm of ammonia and 6ppm of chlorine.
Should i still be concerned?
Lifewithpets

Yes the bacteria in the filter will take care of it.

This is really really amazing. You've made the entire process seem so simple, straightforward and non-threatening. Sometimes I will try to explain to people that there is more to setting up a tank than just buying a tank, filling it up and throwing fish in. I often can tell they feel daunted or overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information just in cycling a tank. Here you've broken it down into easy steps and stages that make it simple for anyone with a test kit. I will definitely be sending people to this series. It's just so wonderfully done!!! You should be really proud of all the hard work you put into this.

I can understand the whole video!, the most videos about the cycle I couldn't understand but that one is the best, I always use stability( before I thought that liquid you can put fish in there but no) thanks for video
