Hi! I have a veil tail betta named Ciroc[Sir Rock]. He is a very pretty boy of black, red, and very little blue. I wish I had pictures of him and his home!
His domain is a 5 gallon aquarium. At first I always had the filter on but I noticed he couldn't swim around much because of the motion so I turned it off. I was thinking of maybe leaving it on at night while he rest and leave it off during the day? Would that be okay? I haven't done any water changes yet but was thinking, since I have the filter on and off, doing them every 10-15 days? or would I not need to so often?
For right now I have some neon rocks as a substrate[planning on getting black sand]. a glow in the dark moonrock and plant, big seashell against the plant to make a hideout and a glass vase he likes to swim in and out of.
When I got him at walmart I was looking at the fish and the had sooo many dead ones! It was terrible and even had fish eating the dead ones. And I've heard that all of their aquariums are running off of ONE filter!!!
I've been wanting to call walmart and make them do something about it
Feel free to ask questions and give advice about his arrangements. He was a rescue from the walmart fish chamber :/
My main questions was would it be safe to use glass fragments as substrate? I don't think it would be but it wouldn't hurt to ask.
