Thanks for the reasurance. There are 2 things I'm worried about - 1. That his tank will get too cold over night or too hot because of the heating pad. Basicly, the tempature. 2. That I'll wake up and he'll be unexpectedly (Is that spelt right e.e?) passed away. I think after the first week, I'll be pretty relaxed. Same with my little baby fry. God, I'm SO excited for my baby fry too! I wish I had them today ;~;... I still need my tanks though.. So it's okay :3.

Thank You!

Update -

Well, last night the heater I had under Reds' tank wasn't heating up enough and his water was in the 70s, I ended up taking a diffrent heater, on that people would use for their like shoulders and such and his tank heated up to be about 81 degrees. I was so worried last night, I wrapped his tank with 2 shirts and my towel and just to make sure his water wouldn't get cold, I woke up every 2 hours to make sure the heater was on and working. I also went back to walmart and my mom baught me some betta pellets, he spit them out, he wants the flakes. Lol. That's okay though.

Also, I only baught 3 gallons of water, I'm down to 2, so do you think that I should just do 25% - 50% water chages for a few days till I get more bottled water? I think it'll be better, give me your opinions :3.

Btw - Red is such a little flare king! Every time he notices I'm looking at him, he swims up to the side where I'm at and flares like "Hey! I see you!" God I love Him x3.

Why did you buy water? It would be cheaper/easier for you to buy some good water conditioner that takes care of chlorine, chloramine, ammonia, nitrates, and nitrites. Use it with your normal tap water and it will be fine. Unless your tap is toxic?

That actually what I'm afraid of as the tap water has a really weird taste and sometimes it smells... so I just don't want to take any risks on him or on my baby fry I'm getting.

How does it smell? Metallic? Chemically? Or does it smell like sewage?

Get a water conditioner that takes out chlorine, chloramine, ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, and heavy metals. I use a combination of amquel plus and aquasafe(haven't found a cheap conditioner that does everything, lol). I totally get the metallic issue at my own home and my fish do well with it. Also, if you read other threads here, several will say that bottled water doesn't have some of the things bettas need to be healthy(electrolytes being one of them). Hope this's helpful!

Thanks Slipstitch! I'll look into that when I'm getting my 10 gallons, but for the moment, he'll just have to be in bottled water, mainly because at the moment, I have no money for the conditioner or his tank, I think he'll be okay for a few days.. Till then I'm going to do 25% - 50% water changes (Unless it's just really bad e.e..)
