Yeah, it's the same thing...as long as you followed the instructions on the conditioner package it should be fine...

For a 100% water change, I cup the betta and then dump all the water out. I wash the entire tank, gravel, decorations, etc. with warm water and scrub if anything needs scrubbing. Then add the water & fish back.

I usually just keep my fish in for 50% changes, mostly I just suck out any poo at the bottom and then remove some of the old water and add some treated water.

Varying food is good, I don't think bettas would get consitpated if you just fed them one type of food though...usually that's due to the amount people feed and not soaking their food.

Let's see...I have HBH Betta pellets and Aqueon I believe...and some other pellet idr...I think Tetra. I also have freeze dried brine shrimp that they get as a treat.

Some do some don't. It doesnt hurt them. I do it. But I think its based on opionon and how much is fed.

I also do it. It's supposed to help clear their systems. I don't really think there's a right or a wrong though, do it if you want to.

No, you'll want to make sure they don't have their light on during night. They need sleep too! :P

thanks! me too! and i have 2 more questions: if he doesn't eat the food, should i leave it in there for him to eat later or try to clean it out before it sinks to the bottom?
and: i read about "bubble nests" what are these exactly and is it a good sign if my fish does this?

bubble nests are what your male makes when he is happy, it will look kinda like suds from soap, but in one spot, and my fish eat the food once it gets to the bottom, after is has soaked, i don't know your fishes preferences though so, its what ever you want, if he doesn't eat them then it will make your tank quite filthy over time...
