Red face New owner, and hopelessly addicted already!

Hello everyone,
I have heard so many different things about Betta care, and the does and dont's that my head is spinning!!
I bought my first Betta 2 weeks ago. Beezy, is Crimson Red with Slate Blue and I believe is a Veil Tail. Hes in a 1gallon, "Betta Starter Tank" It came with Filter, Tank, hood w/light, food and water conditioner. I bought substrate, a plant and a thermometer. Its sitting constantly at 76 deg (Yes, even at night with NO heater...)
Hes been doing amazing, swimming around lots, flaring when he sees his reflection, and watches me when I come home from class at 10pm, and waits for bedtime and lays in his decoration.

Today, I was out with the boyfriend and we where getting things, and fish for his tank, and I could not resist picking up 2 Half moons at one of our stops.
Midnight, is a Half Moon, and Black, with a DEEP Blue hue.
Frost, is a Half Moon as well, and Hes a Silvery Frost main body color, with Red and Black... Hes the one in my profile Pic.
I picked up a "Betta Bow' 2.5 Gallon,with a Divider from Aqueon, It came with the same as the 1st Tank, and also picked up substrate, and a decoration for each side. There is plenty of room on either side for them to swim, hide and play... And flare at each other.

I felt it appropriate to introduce my beautiful new boys and I look forward to hearing from you all at 1 point or another, and reading some of the great posts here.

Chat later!

Hello and welcome to the addiction

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
