Ello! I desided to bring home my..okay not my first..but a new betta fish, he looks rather lovley *points to profile picture* I'm still trying to name the little guy, I'm thinking sharky ahahha. So anyway, my tank looks pretty cool, I have water condioner and two types of food, tomorrow im getting a water heater as well as a nice cave for him to swim threw and hide it if he wants. I was wondering if there anything else I need for my new little friend, so far he is VERY lively hes swimming around and he looks MUCH happier then he was at the pet store, I just want my new litle buddy to stay happy and healty. when I was a kid my mom and me got a betta, a nice blue one, very pretty but he had ich when we got him and we dident know what to do so he unfortunatly died days after we got him. I want this guy to have a long happy life! If there is anything i need to get please tell me! also..are the flakes or pellets better for them, I have both.
