3 gallon tank maintenence

Hi all,

I just put my betta Julio into a brand new 3 gallon tank which he just LOVES!
So glad i moved him from his tiny 1 gallon one.

Anyway, now that he is in, im wondering what the best water changes are... his tank is heated, with some silk plants and other decotations and no filter.

Ive read some of the sticky's but they have different advice.

Please help :)

In my 3.9 gallon tanks, which are all unfiltered, I do two water changes per week: one 50% and one 100%. That schedule keeps everything nice and clean. I do have live plants in them though, which improves water quality, but I think that schedule should be fine for no live plants too, unless I'm mistaken.

Yayy, Melbournites!

Currently I'm feeding them Hikari Betta Bio-Gold pellets, but since joining this forum I've learned that they're not the best to be feeding them and have ordered some New Life Spectrum pellets instead. If you're in the market for new food, go with the NLS, it seems to be the highest recommended out there. ^.^

And no problem!
