?So for some reason my step grandmother gave my son a betta for christmas.....without telling me first. I've done big freashwater tanks before for goldfish,cherry bombs, and rainbow sharks, but this is my first betta. My usual tank is full of my moms books so it will takea while to clean out and get set up. I need help advice a blessing from posidon to get this little guy,I think its a guy.....or a girl i have no idea how to even tell them apart, to survive.
He came in one of those tiny little bowls that you see in the big chain petshops and i wanted to give him more space. Untill i can get my big tank cleaned i have another container that i could use for now but i don't know how to do the switch. What kind of water can i use. I was told by the local petshop to only use bottled water . Do i need to treat the water should i/ can i get another fish to keep him company? Help me o wise betta folk, i want to give the little guy some space
while i work on the big tank, which i think is either 20 gals or 50 gals. I want to do the switch today if possible
