Awesome! But you can't clean the media with tap water, the BB will die off because of the chlorine. Add water conditioner in all the water you put in and that's it. :) Good care over all. Beautiful tank and I expect a happy Betta from you. :P

Woops i didn't add that into the notes right. But that's what the "fill a bit into ice cream container" was for. I meant to add some tank water into the clean ice cream container and then rinsing the media in there. (That's why there's the "old tank water container as well as the ice cream container, I wanted the extra container i swish the media in to be extra clean haha) thanks for replying :)

My lil buddy passed away from a cronic internal infection a few months ago :'( He was a good lil boy who stayed strong the entire time.
I'm getting the new betta tmrw, or on tues (Don't worry, this is a new tank he never got transfered to from his 2 gal sadly, and I've fully cleaned out the old decor Blazer had used that I'm using in here with burning hot water for like over an hour, I'm super paranoid when it comes to cleaning my fishy's stuff haha)
