My friend got me a beautiful betta fish for my 18th birthday 2 weeks ago.
He came with a tiny tank(half a gallon?) and a plastic plant.
My brother bought me a 1 gallon tank, gravel, and a banana plant so I put them together and it looks really good.
An air pump and lighting top came with the tank but I'm not using the air pump right now.
I don't have a filter, salt or any other accessories except food pallets and water conditioner.
I light the top on and leave it during the night when it might get cold.
I feed him once or twice a day about 7 pallets.
I change the water every 5-7days.
He swims around, plays around the plastic plant, eats well, etc.
Hope I'm doing fine... I'll take advices!:)
does anyone know anything about banana plants?
Sometimes it gets this clear mucous looking thingy around it
I wonder if that's a ok thing.
And my fish has this white fin tip on its ventral fin(the one right under its chin?)
I dont think it's a fin rot but I read something about it but can't remeber..
maybe it was something about mating time...
thanx for reading
