Okay so update on Electro, my new heater arrived today and it's huge.. way too big for the tank so I am off shopping for a new tank. There's a place that sells them second hand so I'm going to go try and get a good quality tank there. I also need a decent light asap as the plant is beginning to wilt so the current light is definitely not cutting it.
I'm bidding on one for $10 on e-bay so lets hope that 1. I win it and 2. my plant survives until it gets here.
According to my new thermometer (spelling?) my tank is definitely too cold. There's a testing kit on e-bay for $30 as well so I'll get one of those next. Is it just me or is fishkeeping an expensive hobby? lol
Once I get the set up right it should be relatively inexpensive. Bloodworm treats are on my shopping list too once everything is set up.
I have new plants coming in the mail soon so I'll have to get cracking. My advice to anyone going to buy a fish.. please do your research first, don't just buy one and shove them in a tank and expect all to be great.
Also, curious thought.. I have no idea if my betta is male or female. Anyone know how to tell the difference?
