I've been having issues keeping my gravel clean since I am handicapped I can't operate those syphons...I found a vacuum that's battery operated but it's still not ideal. Marley is very sensitive to ANY current so I only have a sponge filter and it provides no mechanical filtration.
I was wondering if there are any tank mates for male bettas that might eat some of the detritus on the tank floor....most of it is Marley's poop I think because I use the net to retrive any uneaten food immediately.
Or would live floating plants help process wastes? And would these plants need anything added to the water to keep them alive?
Thanks! Oh and by the way his water parameters are normal so there's no problem of excess ammonia/nitrates...yet. That's what I'm worried about.
