Hello fellow fish lovers!
My name is Jessica and I am an avid lover of betta fish. They're so gorgeous. Two years ago I fell in love with bettas after getting one for my son. His name was Nemo and he died a few days ago. Just yesterday we decided to get a new one. He is a crowntail male named Splash. So I only have a couple years experience with betta keeping.
I keep Splash in a 3 gallon tank with a hood and mini heater, made for small tanks. I keep his tank at about 72 degrees and ph at a 7.2 I don't use a filter because our beloved and deceased Nemo got stuck between the filter and tank which has terrified me. Instead I do a complete water change every 3-4 days which has seemed to work for us.
Splash is our only fishie. We plan on getting a dog for my son's birthday in June. Otherwise that's it for now. I joined in hopes of learning more about bettas and having others to discuss betta care with that share my love of these colorful beauties.
Thanks for reading. Have a great day!
