I got my betta fish yesterday. It was a gift (from a special person) and I know nothing about how to keep them properly.
I have one male and one female betta fish. They live in separate tanks though.
Each of the tanks is 1G
My questions are :
What should be the ideal water temperature? (The room temperature, where the tanks are, is 75 F (in average))
Do I need a heater?
How often I should change their water? (I was told twice a week is this OK)
If I use tap water, should I pre-heat it to reach some ideal temperature?
The first day, male fish looked very happy, but female was kinda shy.
Today, the second day, it is opposite. The female fish is much more active than the male. She ate all the food I gave to her. Male fish is staying in on position and ate just a bit of the food.
Is this normal?
This is the first time I have fish and I like them A LOT.
I'll make everything to make them happy.
