All the time LOL) Any good suggestions for them? I will of course buy a light and heater and i was wondering if i should get a bubble maker? And one last question: Is sand easy to clean and how do you clean it or is there something better to use for a substrate? And are there any improvements i can make to my plans? Thanks! Answers are appreciated and we will be purchasing the tank and supplies on sunday or monday.
You know the first time i came on and saw you saying they were addictive i thought "pssh" then i got a betta and im like " I NEED MORE!!!"
As far as a filter goes get a power filter raited for 5-10 or 2-10 gallons rather one that says 10-15 or 10-20
I seem to remember other members say the filter in the link above has a flow adjuster?
Also the one in the link above, is for 2-10 gallons.
Really I dont think it would hurt anything to get a filter raited for smaller tanks than you have, bettas dont need huge strong filteration.
10 gallon tanks need a heater of 50-100 watts.
