Keeper to Be

Aright guys, I can't really call myself a Betta Keeper yet, because I don't have a Betta to... well, keep. My mother insists on not buyng a heater, but I'm probably just going to go buy one myself, along with a three-gallon tank. What do you guys think in terms of filters? Yay or nay?

Filters aren't needed for anything under 5 gallons at all, since tanks that small can be hard to cycle.
Just do your water changes and you shall be fine :D

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Thanks to you too! I'm going to set up the tank today, and get the fish tomorrow.

Welcome and good luck picking out your new fishy friend.

You'll def. need a heater where you live and you can find 25w submersible heaters fairly cheaply online.


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