Hey! I have some questions and I was hoping some of you wonderful and so filled with betta knowledge could help me. Anyhoo, I have a 10 gal now for Splash. Which by the way he loves it!!! So active and happy! Well now that I have a bigger tank all for him I am becoming highly interested in decorating my tank. So far I have two ornaments and three plants. I am getting three more plants and two more ornaments, one of which is big. So for my questions:
Do you think five ornaments and six plants are enough for a 10 gal tank? Or should I have more? Splash isn't an extreme hider but I still want to make him feel comfy and cozy with enough stuff but not too crowded. I still want him to be able to enjoy his swimming room.
Also I have been considering sand. What do you think is best? Gravel, sand or pebbles?
If I do go with sand what is the best way to clean it? How often do you clean the sand? Does it take a long time to settle when you do water changes?
