Talking Previous Thread Update

Hey Guys!
As you may know, I posted a thread about a week ago saying when I was going to buy my new betta fish, and what was going to be purchased along with him/her. Well... I have some updates for you guys!
When my new fishy will come home- Friday April 5, 2013 at about 5pm
What type of betta I will buy- Whatever fish catches my eye
Where I will buy my betta+everything else- Petco and Petsmart


What I will buy other than my fishy *hopefully-
  • 2.5g aquarium+top
  • bubbler system
  • aquarium gravel
  • beach scene aquarium ornaments+plants
  • betta fish food
Just to let you guys know, I already have aquarium cleaner and water conditioner. Is there anything else I need to purchase?

Also, here are the names that I have chosen after everybody voted.
Boy: Fernando or Fonzie
Girl: Wanda or Lotti

UPDATES WILL COME AS SOON AS I HAVE SOMETHING TO UPDATE
(PICTURES WILL COME TOMORROW!!!)

You might grab a $1 net so you can safely move your new fish when you need to. :) Be sure to keep the container he/she comes in!

Don't net a betta... Always use the cup.

A bubbler system is not needed while a thermometer and heater are defiantly needed for the tank

I won't be buying a heater, but I am now going to buy a light.

A heater is needed to keep the correct temperature along with a thermometer to monitor the temperature

You can get a Top Fin heater 7.5 watt for about $12 at Petsmart and is definitely a better investment than the unneeded bubbler which will cost about the same price there. I'd look for food at Petco they either sell New Life Spectrum or Omega which are better brands. You should read the Betta care sheet at the beginning of this section. This will best prepare you for bring home your new betta and has a shopping list. Here it is:
