Hello everyone! I'm new and I currently have a Crowntail Betta fish named Oscar that I've had for about 7 months now. The first few months He was in a half gallon vase(I was new at this) and is now currently in a 1 gallon tank with a bubble stone.
My questions were:
How long does a 10 gallion tank need to set and filter before its ok to add Oscar?
I currently have a Elite Radient 50 Watt 8" Aquarium Heater that I've read somewhere shorts out after a while soon exceeding temps of 100 degrees. Tomarrow however I believe I shall return it and get a better(and more exspensive) Heater. What are your thoughts on that?
Also the tank has 10 lbs of natural gravel stones (like what you would find at a bottom of a stream, smooth and small) and a Aqueon Quietflow 10 filter. I also have 5ml of Aqueon Water conditioner in the tank as well.
Currently it has no planets or deco because I wish for the water to stablize before adding live plants. (thinking Java plant and two lily bulbs).
So any comments/concerns please state :) Suggestions are welcome!
Here's a picture of it currently:
