Add in 1tsp/gallon and put him in the .5 only if you can properly heat it :)

thank you PewPewPew, the tank will probably stay around 24-26 celsius in the location i usually put it in. dropped by the LPS and got a box of AQ salt (430g box) and the same coated and smooth gravel the .5 gal came with (2 kg bag for the 1gal tank.) can plastic plants be made safe if i take the sharp edges off them with scissors?

I know this is wrong website/wrong species but just wanted to confirm with others.....

Query: Appropriate sized tank for two comet goldfish? I know they are pond fish and should be in a 200Gal pond but....

I want to start budgeting to get a bigger tank for Nigel and Dea as soon as I can, because I know big tanks are kind of expensive, so I'll need more time to budget. By minimum size I mainly mean affordable, lol...I definitely cannot just randomly move a bajillion gallon tank into my apartment or even future home without serious consideration.

I think my aunt has a 30-50G tank lying around with a stand and everything (I don't remember exact size), I would love to take it *RIGHT NOW* but I think my building would collapse under the weight , LOL

GAH I hate seeing empty tanks, I just wanna put a fish in it XD *shot*

I think that a 160 G would be fantastic!! But a 100G would be more feasible.

@Neil: Ahh yeah that would be so nice!~

OK SOMETHING BETTA RELATED
Query: I think my bettas are bored? They have a lot of deco/plants and I let them flare at themselves (Lin too) in the mirror for about 10 minutes (30 sec flare, 1 minute no flare) everyday for exercise.

Yet all they do is "pace" the front pane of the tank, even though I pay a lot of attention to them. Is it just my betta or does everybody else experience this @_@?

Sometimes my guys like to do this... But not much...

Put your finger on the surface of the water and let him/her chase it.

the tank doesnt drop any lower tha 24 celsius with AQ salt in it and its caudal seems worse off since it went in less that 24hrs ago. does think tend to happen alot b4 it gets better? looked closer at the tail and looks more like a torn tail and maybe some bitting (straight V cuts) removed the plastic plants
the pics of it yesterday b4 the AQ, the pic quality is not the vest camera (dont think it has macro setting) and the fish was moving around toomuch to catch a better pic.

umm... my pk betta has one gill cover that seems like hes... popped? kinda like how the umbrella pops ovr to the other side when the wind is really strong.. hes been flaring a lot recently, so i wonder if hes overdone it somehow.. now the cover doesnt flatten as it should, and it kinda sticks out.. hes active as usual, and eats like a pig.
