I'm kind of upset that I'm not able to get the fish I wanted, but I also know that it isn't fair to the fish to keep them in a bad habitat. Thank you for letting me know. For the water hardness, my city has REALLY hard water. But, my house has a water softener in the shower in the basement. The tank will be in my room on the second floor, so having to go down two sets of stairs might be a bit of an inconvenience. I'm willing to do it, but I would prefer to not have to. For the pH, I haven't tested yet. I feel like such a bad mother, not testing before I put my two fish into their tanks! They are doing fine, though, so I am guessing that the pH is at an okay level for them. When I go to petsmart today I'll be sure to pick up a pH tester. I feel stupid asking this, but what other kind of fish besides neons could I keep with a betta? I'm still very open to suggestions at this point, and here are some stats on the tank:
Water -- hard or soft depending on the fish
pH -- to find out later
Temp -- no heater, but temp stays at about 78 degrees in my room
Filtration -- a three power filter
Measurements -- 2' tall by 13" by 13", 15 gallon
If you need anything else, I'll try to figure it out!
