I currently have three tanks with the specs as follows below.
Tank 1: Planted with crypto wendii, Jack the spadetail betta, mossball (4 gal)
Tank 2: Planted with crypto wendii and an anubis plant, 3 julii cory cats and 1 double tail betta with mossball and stacked stone 'cave'
Tank 3: 2 days into fishless cycle using bloodworms, will be planted, with a slate or stacked stone 'cave'. Species specific Harlequin Rasboras. maybe a couple red cardinal shrimp from the same place as the rasboras if they won't die due to temps the current from my penguin 100 filter, due to the fact if i put cories in it'd be too crowded.
I have found that i'm surprisingly good with fish. I have to change the water on the four gallon today, and changed the currently cycled ten gallon (tank 2) yesterday.
My other pet is a 9 year old siamese mix cat named Cinnamon.

Reason: double posted some of this initial post
If you want your cycle to go a little faster you can go without the water changes util you are all done. Without fish in the tank you don't have to worry about levels unless they get over 4ppm on either ammonia or nitrite. Once it is cycled do a mega change- about 80% wait 24 hours, add fish. I say wait because you will want to check the numbers again several hours later so you can be sure it did cycle.
20 Long: 1 Juli Corycat, 4 red line tetra's, 3 Von Rio tetra, 1 Flame tetra 1 Rubber lipped pleco, 1 Curviceps cichlid, 1 blue tetra.
5.5ga- 1 Beautiful Betta, 1 persnickety snail
I have green things with leafs.
