Hi everyone my name is Shylynn, I have had betta's before when i was a kid and usually had them in those small bubble bowls. For my b-day last week my boss got me one of those bettas in the vase with the plant for my desk. Ilove having my betta at work but have been doing research cause he looks so unhappy in that vase. I plan on getting a 5 gallon tank for him with a filter and heater, my question i manage a preformace autobody shop so there are smells in the air from various chemicals will the smell affect my betta? Also the power in my building is shut off at night so the filter and heater wont be on over night just from 7am to 9pm when the power is on, will my betta be okie? I love having him in my office but if i have to i will bring him home so he is happier.
Also i have seen mentioned on here auqabid...i have been looking at some of the pics of your bettas and they are so beautiful i would love to get a fancier one, is auqabid a good place to purchase bettas? i went to my local pet store but 99% of the bettas are blue and red, i love to have a black and copper/orange one.
thanks for all your help in advance =)
