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!
