I'm new here and new to Betta keeping. My tank just has our male Betta, Brucie. The current set-up is:
-10 gallon tank
-beige-colored aquarium sand
-5 plastic plants of various colors
-aquarium decoration jeep that Brucie can (and does) swim through and rest in
-Betta hammock (plastic leaf that attaches to side of tank w/suction cup)
-Sponge filter, very low flow
-Heater set to 78 degrees
I do partial water changes once a week. I feed him a pinch of Betta pellets twice a day and sometimes add a few flakes, but he doesn't seem to like the flakes at all.
I do plan to upgrade to live plants sometime soon, but wondered if there was anything else I should change?
Also, I know there's a separate forum for this so I don't need specific recommendations, but do you think it would be better to add a tankmate of some sort? (be it fish, snail, etc.) or just let Brucie have the tank to himself?
