The care sheet says 1 100 percents and a few partial water changes.

Housing your betta fish in a novelty 1 - 2 gallon "tank" or smaller will result in harmful substances accumulating in the water quickly and require you to perform partial water changes every other day and a 100% water change once a week. That's a far cry from simply leaving your betta fish alone in a tiny bowl like the setup in many stores might suggest you can get away with. Without regular water changes, a betta fish in such a tiny enclosure will unfortunately succumb to harmful substances in the water quickly. Copied from care sheet.

oh lord, do we really have to have this converstaion again? my fish is well-cared for. I may not do it the way u do it but thats ok. I already got my water change schedule ok'd by OFL whos advice is always spot on. my tank is not a novelty tank just b/c its not your basic square 10g+. its 2g which is plenty for him since he has such a long heavy tail and prefers to rest in his plants most of the day. He has a light, a heater, a thermometer, a "natural filtration system" weekly 100& water changes, he gets high protien food as well as vitamin supplements. he not neglected in any way shape or form. if u feel the need to keep shoving your agenda down my throat then please either refrain from commenting on my posts or add me to your ignore list so u dont see my posts anymore. Im not neglecting my fish, he is quite a happy and well cared for little guy.....if u want people to treat u better in this forum then u need to be less judgemental, argumentative and accusatory towards people. Maybe thats not your intent but its the way it comes off.....

I am just saying a 100 and one or two 25 percents will help I use plant filters too remember regular filters are natural too BB do the work.

THIS is what I was talking about....u frequently come across as arrogant and judgemental. as I said it amy not be your intent but u do and the funny thing is u contradict yourself alot as well. I have a few threads going with u right now that can attest to that. in fact in one us say u "Love betta bowls" yet look at your avatar??? anyway not trying to start a fight just suggesting u work on your delivery a bit and recognize that everyone on here cares for thier fish or they wouldnt be here and that there is more than one way to do things and u dont have to bash people b/c they dont do it your way
