P.S. - You picked a really large tank thats awesome. Do you have a filter? How often do you do water changes?? I'm not sure if your new to betta fish or not so just making sure
Put it in the middle! Oh my gosh. lol. Yes I am new to bettas and fish in general. I will try putting the heater in the middle. I feel silly. :)
I do have a filter. It is a Rapids Power filter. I like that I can adjust the flow. It is turned down low and he seems to be doing fine with it. I don't think it's knocking him around.
After the tank cycled I did a big water change, about 80%. That was a few days ago. Tested the water again last night and all was well. I plan to do about a 10-15% water change twice a month. Do you think that is sufficient?
