I recently bought a 10 gallon aquarium at a flea market thinking I would give my current betta a grand new home - figuring on putting a bunch of hiding places and whatnot so he won't get too overwhelmed with the vastness of his new space
hes been in a 1 gallon brandy snifter style bowl for about a year now - but I've been having water quality issues and his fins have slowly fizzled down
so my questions are:
1. do you think his fins will come back to their former flowing beauty in a larger, more easily maintained tank... or is he stuck this way now?
2. how often should I change the water in a 10 gallon tank (it won't have a filter (at least not at first) but it will have a heater and a small, gentle airstone, probably in one corner or against the back wall)
3. I'm not in love with the idea of a 10 gallon tank taking up a whole end table just for ONE fish... soooooo I'm considering adding a cory or two - is this a bad idea?
any other help or suggestion would be great too =)
