Ugh, so I feel like I am neglecting my babies. I have two Betta's and they are both placed in these kind of tanks;
This is only a TEMPORARY living arrangement for them right now. I know not having the tanks heated is a problem, and I would like to be able to give them more room to swim and explore.
I am waiting on my big paycheck from work coming this week, and I will be purchasing a 10 gal tank to divide for them.
My question is, with these little junk tanks I have them in now, how is a safe way to go about changing the water without stressing them out with water changes? The water gets gross really quick, obviously. So when I clean them out, I usually just fill them back up with bottled water at room temp, so I have been maintaining around the same temp. of water for them, but I do not want them to die. Will they be okay for another 4-5 days? We just got them about 2 days ago.
Like I said, this is a short fix until I can get the other tank set up. I honestly think it's cruel to keep them trapped up like this, and think that they shouldn't sale tanks like these. I rescued these fish, with little to no money, so this was my only choice on no notice.
All help & advice is appreciated.
