New To Bettas, Hoping For Some Tank Suggestions
Hi everyone! I'm pretty new to bettas, and was hoping to get some tank suggestions. Currently my boy Tully is in a half gallon that I purchased when I got him, with plans of upgrading next week. I've been changing his water every other day, and he's active, eating (reasonably) well, and a perky little guy. :)
That wood/plant thing in the tank with him is also a hidey hole, which he loves. I really can't wait to move him to a bigger tank though, with how active he is I think he'd absolutely love more space.
I'm really torn over what tank to get. I was pretty set on the Marineland Hex 5, then I was looking at the Marineland Crescent 5, and the Fluval Spec V. But then there's the Top Fin and Aqueon starter aquariums, and each one seems to have such mixed reviews on petstore and amazon listings, I thought I'd ask you guys!
Which aquarium would be good for a first timer? I don't know the reputations of certain filter systems, but I'm sure you guys know which ones are great for bettas. Any advice would be great!
