I'm getting a male betta fish in a few days, and I've read up on everything i'm supposed to do for him, and I was curious about his tank set up. I'm getting a heater for his tank, but their are going to be two live bamboo plants in his tank with him. I put them in water, and there are little oxygen bubbles where the glass tapers at the top.
Is bamboo safe to put in with a betta (will it rip his fins?)?
And do I need a water filter for him?<<< soley for oxygenating purposes. His water's getting changed in increments twice a week...
