This guy is one of those typical betta keepers in that Zen tank and changing the water 100% once a week.
Query: Lucky fish? Or just a very resilient fish...I've seen him, he seems fairly active in whatever space he has, reacts to almost every stimuli possible (both swimming around and/or flaring), loves pellets, bloodworms and long walks on the beach
I must buy a new tank tomorrow. Lin's 2ish gal is leaking a bit (nothing urgent, will last for a while) due to its age. I am considering getting either a 3 Gal or 5 Gal crescent depending on which one is available at the store.
I have heard some success stories of introducing the betta LAST when trying for a community tank with other species, what could I put in a 3 Gal or alternatively a 5 gal?....No snails plz X_X
Also, what is the smallest size able to hold a cycle? I want the 3 Gal for physical space conservation because it's on my desk (HongBo's 5gal is pretty spacey already), but I would be willing to MAYBE adjust my desk a little if she needs a 5 gal too, but I am leaning towards the 3 right now
