Next Stop! Pet Store!!

Hey guys!! I'm going to the pet store tomorrow I have a few things I need to pick up.

Aqua Salt
Decore (pebbles and live plants possibly)
Stress Coat
Water Thermometer
Possible a Heater
Chemical Test Strips (I think that's what their called.)

If there is anything I missed please let me know. I'm not sure of a heater so if I should please tell me. I'm also picking up pebbles so should I get a gravel vacuum? Also how does it work Thanks guys!

Go for liquid test kits. API master test kit is highly recommended by many users, and I quite like it myself.

For live plants, I would definitely suggest java fern (or java moss if you can find it).

Heater and thermometer is a must have. I highly recommend a heather with a thermostat on it as well, so you can adjust the temperature. Always heat the water without your fish in it though, so you don't put him in shock due to sudden water changes, and so you can adjust the temperature in case the heater is slightly off.

New Betta Food (I have wardley, the pellets are so big Oddie only ate one pellet yesterday (he tried and tried but the pellets wouldn't fit in his mouth!))

You don't have to get new pellets, just crush up the old ones if you can.
