Prime Water?

Hey again guys. >_<


I was wondering if I had found the correct products I was suggested.

Seachem(?) Prime Water Conditioner.
Omega One Betta Buffet

It seems like that and the food you can only buy online..I'm going to be going to the store(Petco) tomorrow and I need to know if those two items you can get in store, if not I would love to get some more suggestions on food, water conditioner and some plants too maybe. Thanks guys (:

Prime is great, IMO. It's what I use.
Some Petcos carry New life Spectrum food and that's another one of the top choices for bettas.

Alright. I'll look into the New life Spectrum.

And I'll look for the Prime Water as well, if they don't have that is anything that's considered second best?

API products are decent :) The reason that Prime is considered so superior to other water conditioners is because it is the only one that can convert ammonia and nitrites into less harmful substances (which still need to be manually removed of course). It's worth the money to buy it online if you can find a site with free shipping.

Yeah I heard API was pretty good as well.


So currently I have..

Gravel
Gravel Vacuum
Blood Worms
New life Spectrum
API or Seachem Prime Water Conditioner
New Heater
Plants
Hiding Places.

I'll be purchasing all of that tomorrow and will be getting the fish the next day, that'll give the tank enough time to cyle with the conditioner in before placing in the fish. I heard with the Seachem you can't just put the fish in immediately any how.

A 10 gallon with a whisper filter I believe? I don't remember what the name brand was but I did buy the filter from Petco. The tank didn't come with the filter, hood or anything so I had to buy everything separate. ;_;

Lol yeah that's pretty typical, they either come in a full kit or you get nothing but the actual tank. If you haven't opened up the box for the filter yet I would highly recommend returning it and getting a sponge filter connected to an air pump with adjustable flow instead. This isn't totally necessary but bettas can be sensitive to filter flow, and if you picked up the kind that sits mostly underwater they can get their fins sucked into the intake and cut up. I bought all Whisper filters when I first started keeping bettas and I wish I hadn't wasted my money.

stuff at petco

Every Petco I have been to has Prime. It's not by the Betta supplies, it's usually with other fish stuff. They also almost certainly have the Omega One Betta Buffet pellets. Again, these may not be in the betta area, go look for an aisle that has TONS of fish stuff. You'll usually find aquarium salt, etc in that area as well.
