    So....yesterday I had my birthday party. Boom. My friend got me a betta that I was totally unprepared for. This made me do this: get a filter, cycle another tank, move a fish, move another fish into another tank. And in the midst of that, I'm setting up two new tanks! So it's gonna be hard, and here's the thing, broken down.


    Phase 1: Cycle the 10 Gallon

    This 10 gallon will be cycled for the Honey Gourami.

    Phase 2: Possibly get the 75gal

    If I was a good enough, I will receive the 75gal by this weekend or the next, and this might not happen.

    Phase 3: Get shrimp and move Honey Gourami

    The shrimp will go in the 1.5 (betta's current residence until he moves), and the gourami into the 10gallon.

    Phase 4: Move the betta

    Either into the 6gallon or another 2.5gal.

    Phase 5: Restock the 75gal

    If I get the 75gal, it will be restocked in the spring when I have the most time.

    Phase 6: Stock the 10gal

    Summer 2019, if the gourami has not passed away yet, this will not happen. If the gourami passes away during this cycling in the other tank, than it will be home to a pea puffer, but later, it will restocked.

    I will add Phase 1 tomorrow.

    Phase 1: Cycle the 10 Gallon.

    So last night, I went out, got some Prime and an internal filter (the space between the tank and wall is very small, no HOB filter will fit). My friend got the ship for my birthday, so now I used some sand (half of it is new, the other half is from another tank so I have some ammonia sources). This phase will complete December 12th, 2018. I will also plant the tank with some Java Moss this weekend.

    "Phase 1.5": Things Have Changed

    So just an update, the betta has died off from dropsy, and the tank is near finished cycling. The 75gallon tank will be a long effort, so will probably come in in literally a full year or more. Though today, I have one question. Shall I get more (and if so, what fish) fish to live with my male Honey Gourami in the 10 gallon one it is done cycling?
