My betta fish, Rakki, is currently in a one-gallon bowl, but I'm working on getting him a five-gallon aquarium. I'm looking at getting him this aquarium:
Would you say this would be a good one for a betta? The reviews on the Walmart website look pretty positive, other than saying the filter that comes with it would need to be baffled. I plan to cycle it, although I'm still working on understanding the process. I've read that Tetra SafeStart can be a great way to greatly shorten the process of cycling. Is that right?
Also, I'm still exploring my options as to whether I might want to get companions for Rakki or divide the aquarium in the future for a second betta. Would you still recommend this aquarium?
As a side note, since I figure there might be recommendations for aquariums from Petco or Petsmart, the closest of each of these stores is thirty minutes away from me and I have limited transportation. So I'm trying to see what I can get from Walmart, whether it's in-store or site-to-store.
Thanks for any advice or input!
