I took a picture of Beaux's tank today and I want to make sure it's ok for him. I just got him from a friend who didn't want him and wasn't taking care of him so I want to make sure he's healthy and happy.
I have a 2.5 gallon. No filter, gravel, a heater, a thermometer, a ceramic cup, some water wisteria and some kind of fern. The tank was really for reptiles but I couldn't find a 2.5 gallon that had holes in the top for the fish to breathe. Also, I've read about water test kits. Should I get one? I have a vague idea about what they are and how they work. Would anyone mind explaining them in a little more detail?
Thank you for answering all my questions. Y'all will probably see a lot more of me as I take care of Beaux!
