thank you and I am glad I found this site. I had my guy in a small .75 gal "betta tank" no heater, no filtration, no light. After reading several online posts to betta care and finding this site I went out and spent the last $60 i had
I purchased a petco 2 gal hexagon tank with day/night/off LED light, and filter nice little package for under $30... A Tetra HT10 submersable heater for 2 to 10 gal tanks.. a magnetic inside the tank Thermometer, a tiki statue and a live plant and blue gravel.
the tank was filled with tap water that was treated with Amquel and Novaqua to neutralize chlorine and chloramines and nitrites, nitrates as well as heavy metals and priveds a slime coat... hope thats a good thing as many have recommended those two conditioners... the tank has been running for over 20 hrs and is at temp... my baby was put in a baggie with ample air and is floating in the bag in the tank now...
How long before I can release him into his new home?
