I'm still thinking about upgrading our betta from his small bowl in hopes that he will happier, healthier, and require slightly less daily maintenance.
I was thinking of starting with empty 2.5 gal tank like this ( http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...n=Product+Type
) and adding equipment to it, but then I realized that I'm probably better off just getting a small kit and adding a small heater.
I'm most interested in the Aqueon Mini Bow ( http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...ductId=3611436
) or the Betta Bow 2.5 ( http://www.petsmart.com/product/inde...uctId=11100218
), which I assume is the same tank plus a divider. I like that they include a top and light and filter.
Does anyone have experience with these types of tanks? How are they? I'm worried about the filter creating too much current. Some reviews say it's too strong and others say it's fine. Are there any good alternatives?
Also, will having a filter in a tank this small (2.5 gal) really help and reduce the amount of water changing needed? Thanks!
