XD that's ok. do it when you have time. good clean warm water is enough for now...

His tank looks fantastic. I hope that he will be your good companion for years to come!

you don't need the bubbler... return that and save!

as for the filter... you can baffle it. take a picture of it for us wont you?

Really good work!

He will turn around and it's wonderful that you got him this beautiful new home!

Remember to do water changes with a clean turkey baster (makes it so much easier when you have a small tank).

I know EXACTLY what tank you got lol, I have one as well.


You can replace that filter there with this one, it's not as windy and it takes the same filter pads as the one that came with the tank, it's a Tetra Whisper 3i in-tank filter :

You can get it at WalMart, PetSmart or PetCo.. WalMart is the cheapest & sells the cheapest replacement pads as well.

Holy crap what an awesome tank! LOVE the purple :)
Yes, as mentioned, you don't need aq salt. Just keep the water nice and clean .


I baffled my filter with an elastic band and a sponge too lol. It gets so manky and dirty but the snail loves to clean it and the fish are fine with a still water surface.

I did baffle the filter, lol, it is a little generic, but hey!
I think I will get the Tetra Whisper.
He looooves to hide. My only concern is him being able to see the food amongst all his toys. I think he may have fin rot, so I may ride down to petco today to get some salt.

I have the 2.5 gal Aqueon Betta Bow and it's wonderful. It come with a divider to add two bettas but I DO NOT recommend that. 2.5 gal is only good for one betta. ;) Enjoy your new guy.
