I have had my Betta (Lindo) for just over a year and he has been in a Aqueon 1/2 gallon tank with no heater or filter and has been doing just fine.
BUT, after reading info on this message board I went and bought him a Marina Betta Mini Heater and it seems like it is heating his little tank too much. The temp is around 86 degrees, and he is acting a little funny.
So, I went to Wal-Mart and bought him a Tetra 1.5 Cube LED Aquarium.
I have spring water in it right now (our tap water is bad), I added a little betta safe, and I am going to put him in it tomorrow.
How should I put him in his new tank?
I was thinking I should take his heater and put it in the new tank, let it heat up to around 80-82 degrees, and while the heater is out of his old tank his water should go down from 86 (the temp it is now) to around 80-82 while the new tank is heating up.
So by the time I add him to his new tank the temps should be about the same.
Does that sound like a good plan?
Any ideas? Let me know. Thanks! :)
