Sounds awesome! What kind of filter are you looking to use?

Oh that's very nice. The thing with the filters that come with tanks is that they are often too powerful for bettas to cope with; if they come with a spray bar attachment what you can do is fit that to it and point it towards a back corner of the tank, or wrap a sponge around it to reduce the filter flow without risking damaging the internal bits.

I'm Canadian not from the UK. LOL
But, you may want to consider buying off aquabid. You can get some really nice fish imported from Thailand on there. But be careful with imports as they can mysteriously die for no reason.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Hello and welcome to the forum!
I am not from the UK (always wanted to go there!) lol.
But I've heard that a more reliable site to buy a betta on is aquabid. :)

I lived in Preston (between Liverpool and Manchester) for half a year. Back in the states now but my significant other is in West Yorkshire. He doesn't seem to understand my love betta fish, though.
