Is it enough?

After Aquilies death, I think that the one thing would help me feel better is pamper my two bettas

I've decided to upgrade cheshire and blueberry's tank to this:

http://www.kiwoko.com/product_info.p...o-start-p-9250

it's about 3 gallons.

Cheshire has a 2,5 gallon bowl but I thought having a square home would be nice

Blueberry has a 1,8 gallon tank, I just thought he would love to explore a tad more.

Just wondering if my marina heater 10w would be enough for these, I know a place where they sell a relatively cheap heater, but of course that would mean only 1 betta can get the upgrade. (Which would be blue because he lives in a smaller tank)

I also want to add decoration as well Q_Q There is a volcaaaanooo I thinkk Blue would go gaga over.

I'm just worried that the tank looks rather tall, and I know betta's prefer long tanks than tall ones to breathe.

Total price:


2 tanks: 40 E

heater 12 E each total 24

led 16 lights x 2 = 32 (not included with tank)

Current budget 70E

Longer is better BUT tall can work too. I had a 5 gallon marineland hex and that one is taller then longer. You can add plants that are tall and reach the surface or ones that float. That way when the betta is resting, it can rest on the leaves by the surface. They can be real or fake plants. In my tanks that don't have a light, I use plastic floating ones. In the morning, I will find the bettas just chilling on top of the plastic plants. They do the same thing in the tank with live plants.

I don't know if they have there where you are but they will float if not anchored into the gravel. I just rip the plastic bottom part off and its pretty soft plastic so I doubt they can hurt their fins on it
