Soon to have a betta...Kinda worried.
I'm going to get a betta fish soon, I have to get the tank first though no real suprise there. I'm not getting a really small tank don't worry, it's a good size for a betta fish, and it comes complete with bedding(the bedding is a purple color...will that effect the betta?), plants, filter(I think it's not a rough filter...so it wont move the water to much), food, and some other stuff. Hopefully it will be enough, I've never had a betta fish before...I'm kinda scared it dies on like the next day...I hope not...I live in canada too...so the water might be colder then normal for the fish...that is what I'm afraid it will die from, I'm not sure if the tank comes with a heater, I'll have to check that when I get it...then again the betta fish in the store are with out a heater, they also live in these tiny little box's for tanks...I'm sure no matter how bad I'll be as a rookie, it will be a lot better then it was before at the shop...I think.
When I do get the fish, I'll try to get a blue betta fish I love those colors the most in a betta fish, their so pretty and graceful aren't they? I'm not quite sure how long I should wait after getting the tank...isn't it a week normally? to allow the filter or something to prepare the water?
Besides that, I've even come up with a name for him when I get it, If it's blue like I want, I'll name him Berry. Silly I know, but it is cute no?
I've been so paranoid from this, I've been researching and researching info on betta fish trying to get more prepared. I think I know most of the basic things I need to know. Other then that I really can't wait to get him, but I'll make sure the tank is nice before I get the fish of course.
