Well I am new to what can only be described as the world of Betta's. We are planning on getting one for our daughter for her birthday in about 6 months. We want to be well prepared. I have been reading a lot of information as well as I talked to a friend who's daughter has a few. I am so confused.
Can they do well in a 2.5 gallon tank or is 5 better.
Do they do better with a friend in the tank? I know not another betta fish but something else?
What do we look for in a heater? What size tank requires a filter?
If we decide to add a friend to the tank when is the best time? At the same time or later?
I have so much to learn before we get this new pet.
