Lil Sano's NEW TANK!!!!!

Yesterday I was searching online for 2 gallon tanks because all I had for Lil Sano was a 1 gallon bowl. Today I had to give him a salt bath. As he was in his salt bath, I was washing his 1 gallon bowl. When I glanced over it looked as if his scales were pine coning. I PANICKED!!! When I panicked, I dropped his bowl and it shattered. I ran to walmart as fast as I could to get a new bowl. I saw that I had enough money to "upgrade." The tank is 1.5 gallons. It came with an air pump and a filter. I got everything set up as quick as possible. The heater he originally had was taken out of the bowl before I washed it so he still has a nice heater. :) He is amazed with the filter right now. I just wanted to share in our happiness. What a blessing in disguise! Oh, it even has a LED light. Are those okay for betta's? Also, if I slice up baby shrimp, is that okay for him to eat?

Led lights are perfectly safe make sure you turn it off at night. Or it will stress them, they need day and night schedules too.

I hope the pineconing died down, if not you should probably treat your betta for dropsy as soon as possible, pictures would help.

Also, I do not know about baby shrimp but... I would just stick to pellets, flakes, dried worms and brine shrimp. Though i do know that ocassionally bettas can eat other things I would research that before giving him anything.

Hope he feels better
