Thanks Freyja, I'll make sure to watch for that and it doesn't touch anything!

Jupiter, it seems others have a hard time of finding girls too. I was emailing a guy the other day about parakeets, and he said he is having a hard time of find any girls for his mom. Me, I just went to Petsmart looking for a male betta and saw her and came home with both. She was tiny when I got her but she was so pretty!

Anyone else have any ideas, thoughts, or suggestions for me? I would love to hear them!

Lisa

Bettas are small little piggies. It's best to feed them small frequent meals 6 days out of 7. It's better to fast 1 day to let the system clean itself out. I recommend 2 pellets 2-3 times a day. They can survive 3 weeks without food so you don't need to worry about starvation... Variety is key in any diet so you'd want to have different types of food, different times a week. FD worms for treats are really good. 2-3 times per week is maximum. Remember that FD foods can cause bloat so feed sparingly.

Sorry, I only know about cycling small tanks. Not much about their layout.

Fish sleep. Yep, you heard me. Or at least they rest when they get the chance. They do rest at night and awake at day so you want full darkness when it's nighttime.

Hydor THEO heater. It's highly recommended and it's adjustable, too. It can fit in your tank and i have it as well for my 3.5. Make sure to get the 25 watt one and do you want a link to it on eBay?

Value everyone's opinion and good luck with your parakeet. (;

Thank you Lebron! Yes, I would like a link if you have it so I make sure I am looking at the same heater you recommend. I hadn't thought of offering different types of food to her. I'll look into that! I will have to figure out a different setup for that filter pump so she can have darkness at night!

Yes, I do value the opinions of others on this forum as they seem to know MUCH more than I do. So thank you for taking the time to stop by and givce me yours!

As for the Parakeet, I am still working on that one and I hope my betta will help wear down my roommate so she will finally let me have one!

Maybe I should name by betta, Budgie! Maybe that would give my roommate a hint when I say her name!

Oh, I like that one! Thanks Lebron for sharing the link.

As for the name it could help or hinder!
