Good for you! Just be sure to research everything fully and ask any questions you have BEFORE you buy. This site has many people who would love to help, and many people here are very trustworthy for information(knowledgable too!), especially OFL (old fish lady) and all the Moderators and Super Moderators.

I have Aqueon too!!!

It has high soy and wheat contents though, so i will be switching soon.

Don't forget, bloodworms are treats only! They are like basically chocolate to bettas

RBF is right.

Sounds like a good set-up, but you're pretty crowded and you need a heater. I think of it like sharing a bedroom with a pet, if you have a small room you don't want a huge bird cage and a hamster too. Sort of like a betta in a small tank won't want a bunch of other things in there.

Though cories are awesome, not for a small tank. I'd wait and get a good pack of them for your larger tank.

My rule of thumb, for the betta's happiness, is one shrimp per 2.5 gallons or one snail per 5 gallons. So my ten gallon could have four shrimp, two snails, or two shrimp and a snail.

Happy fishkeeping to you and hope to see you around.

Oh how sad (and rude of petsmart!). I guess that eliminates rehoming the little guy though. Sorry to hear that...
