Talking NEW Setup and NEW Betta!

Hey everybody!!!

So i finally convinced myself to get another betta......

I dont have a ton of room, so i was thinking in the 3-5 gallon range....

I have about 50$ saved, but it wont hurt to go a little over.

I was thinking about using a large critter keeper and buying a small heater and filter for it(any recommendations?ideas?).

How should i decorate it?

I was thinking of doing bare-bottom!

Would it need to cycle?

Partial or full water change?

How often would i clean it?

Also, the big questions are in my poll! Please answer those!pros and cons of halfmoon and plakats? Crowntails? Deltas?STarter kit or KK?(Kritter keeper)?

it has great reviews, and i like the design, especially without substrate.

The filter also has an adjustable flow. I think it is about 3 gallons

What do you mean bare bottom? Like no gravel or anything? How would you keep the plants anchored down, or are you not having any plants. Still new to this and trying to learn everything I can!

Yeah for the parakeets! I really want one but my roommate doesn't like them!

The bookshelf one looks the biggest, but If you don't have room, maybe a taller tank instead of wider?

Thanks everybody! Yeah, bare-bottom is without a substrate. I am not sure about plants yet, but no substrate. seems easier to clean. No, i love all of them, but could somebody tell me which one they think is best haha? I thought since a smaller tank, longer fins like a hM?

Barebottom may not be as aesthetically pleasing for some, but it's much easier to clean! I keep most of my smaller tanks bare bottomed.

I always say the bigger, the better, so whichever fits your space & budget that's the biggest would be the one to go for imo. ;)

I only cycle my tanks that are 5 gal+, but water changes and such will depend firstly on which tank you end up picking out and whether you want to filter it or not.

As for bettas...I don't think anyone could pick for you. It's really your own personal preference. ;) Are you planning to buy online or at a pet shop? Usually I go for ones I "connect" with.
