Hello, this is my first post and new to fish care and tank keeping. I have been reading these forums but I feel like I do not understand some things quite well.
I got my first betta (Butters) about 5 days ago. Here is what I have:
- 2 gallon tank with lighting
- 1 anubias plant
- 1 marimo moss ball (bigger than a golf ball)
I guess my question relies more on the water changes part. Since I have the anubias, and moss ball, and since the tank is 2 gallons, is a 100% change still mandatory? So far (since I just started) I have done 1 50% water change. I also used gravel cleaner when I syphoned the water from the tank. I plan on doing the 50% every other day since my tank is only 2 gallons. Am I doing this more than I should be?
Lastly, the moss ball I bought does seem a little big. Can I cut it in half to make 2? I read on here somewhere that it is possible. If so, do I just simply cut it in half, and roll it afterwards?
Thanks in advance.
