I could really use some pointers here. I have never had a fish before...
I just got West today and I really want to make sure he is in a happy environment. My friend had a few bettas, but after reading through all the guides (which were very helpful, thank you guys) I'm starting to see she didn't really properly care for them.
I've got a tiny tank for him (http://www.leesaqpet.com/component/v...etail?Itemid=0
), mostly just as a starter to get him out of his little container. A friend of mine is going to give me a much better tank hopefully tomorrow. I'm not sure the exact size, but I want to say 5 gallons. I've look around but really haven't found anything to answer the questions I have.
So first question: When I transfer him to his new tank, should I do the same process as when I brought him home (acclimating him to his new environment and such) or is this more for the different pH balances?
Second question: I was told by my friend (again not sure if I should just take her for her word, so I'm asking) to just used purified water. Is this ok? Should I still use the water conditioner? And if I'm going from conditioned tap water in his current tank to purified water in his new tank, should I acclimate him again.
Last question: What is this ammonia detoxifer that came with my tank and how do I use it?
Sorry for all the questions but I'd really appreciate some guidance with this. Thank you
