So I'm waiting to hear back from a seller on AB as I won the auction for two pairs of betta rubra.
Does anyone have any advice on their care and potential breeding?
I am setting up a new tank for them (using a cycled filter) and have driftwood to make some caves and will be planting it. Not sure what to go with for a substrate this time as I usually do a dirt tank, though I am still considering it and using fluval stratum as a cap instead of sand (this is what I have in my Albi tank). I do know that they prefer more acidic water (the ph of most of my tanks is 6.8-7.2) so I was going to put peat in a filter media bag and put it in the filter to soften the water and lower the ph more.
Is this a good idea?
Thanks in advance for any help.
