Am I the luckiest Betta owner ever?
WARNING: Story of inexperienced betta owner
There's always threads and members saying how inexperienced they were when they got their first betta. I did some research, and I came on this site often, but I still didn't know that much about Bettas.
So on to the story... I got my fish and followed all the insructions from the site (pellet food, place to hide, heater, thermometer, etc.). So I come home and resolve to change the water once every week (In a 1.5 gallon) and fast once a week. Well the feeding happened, but the water didn't get changed until 2 weeks later. (at least it was 100%) Then The next 2 weeks came, and I only changed partially. By the the feeding wasn't every day. Then I got a 10 Gallon. Water changes obviousley weren't needed as often. The feeding was, by then, 2-3 times a week 3 pellets. This continued for quite a while. But my fish never showed signs of illness or anything bad.
I was wondering how that could be possible?
