Currently I have two bettas, each in their own 2.5 gal tanks with heaters. While I was home for the xmas holiday my dad found my old 10 gal tank in the attic. After much scrubbing and adding bleach to clean it, I would love to use it for my two darlings via a divided tank.
I found a few links for DIY dividers, just curious about a few things;
-> does anyone have any filter recommendations? I know p-much nothing about filter systems and setups...
-> how often should the water be changed? I heard a FULL cleaning should be done once a month, how much water should be changed weekly?
I had asked a blog about the gravel vacuum and heard some horror stories of it regarding bettas and was suggested to use a turkey baster to clean out the yuckies every week. Plus with my ghost shrimp I really don't have much poo hanging around, and I was worried about them when it came to the gravel vacuum.
I plan to take it to Petco after a day of water sitting in it to get the water tested...
Ah one last, do I have to cycle the tank? I'm really not interested in that sort of thing tbh...seems a bit complex for me.
Any advice would be great; thanks!
