Four years ago when I was 11 I had a male betta in a 1/2 gal container.. Gosh so irresponsible! Unheated.. Once daily fed flakes... 100% water change once a week, NO WATER CONDITIONER
somehow he lived 9 months. gosh this is embaressing!!
Got a second and after it died two days later that I realized i needed water conditioner! My third lived for about a year and after that I gave up!
Then was at Walmart 4 months ago, pestered my parents... Brought her home in a 2.5 gal tank... Found this forum through yahoo answers... Shortly after got a 10 gal tank and a heater..
There's my story
