My friend has a fish tank, and she said she use to have a turtle who lived up to 20+ years, but she gave him away to her moms friend since she has a lot of the same type of turtles with huge tanks.
Anyways, my friend ask me if I could help her wash it out so I did, the tank had a LOT of dirt in it then she had a stone cave for the turtle, and the gravel was normal rocks [I think she bought them from the Pet Store not sure] and then we rinsed it out took us hours just to rinse it out, the tank has a lid & a light but it didn't have a filter, heater anything really. So now we had rinse the tank out she put in her fake plant from her older tank [we rinsed it out] and then we put it together, so in the corner we have this cave it has a flat surface on the top and then the rest of it is like stairs and in the middle is a hole you/something can crawl into. Then the "Grave" is rocks like rocks you can get as your front yard to decorate it there not huge but sharp regular rocks that are the same size small, then a fake plant. She is getting a filter & heater, but now what? Is there anything wrong with this it looks like a turtle tank to me...? Will this be safe for her Betta, she is waiting for the tank the cycle first but would this be safe for a Betta? There might be SOME dirt under the rocks, not sure but I had to keep getting buckets and scooping up dirt even though we washed the rocks for so long, we were surprised the dirt was still rolled up in the rocks. So I kept scooping water and emptying it and putting clean tap water. Then I added my own Nutrafin Cycle, Nutrafin Aqua Plus, Nutrafin waste control. I think the waste control helped it.
Anyways, will this be healthy for her Betta? Will this kill her Betta? Her Betta is recovering from fin rot.... Anyways is this bad or good?
