Hi guys. I am new to betta fish and their care, just got my first two boys in the past week. Right now, they both have their own Mini Bow 5 gallon tank, which has the filter running and I added a heater to each tank. I purchased a live plant and a moss ball for each tank, I just have two concerns.
First, should I change the Incandescent light bulb which came with the tank, to the CFL bulb you guys recommend? I am clueless on which bulb, or if any at all, will work in the Mini Bow 5.
Second, I have my live plant planted right into the gravel, is this ok? I believe they are an amazon sword. The fish care person at PetSmart said this would be ok, but I come to find out from reading this forum, that they usually don't know what they are saying. :/
Thanks in advance for any help!
