Just got back from LFS

I just got back from my LFS! I returned my Marina 360 2.65 tank (filter current was too strong and couldn't be baffled without blocking light) and got $45 back in store credit. I bought a new 3 gallon KK, 5 gallons worth of plain colored gravel, Prime, and Omega one. Almost bought some plants, but I don't have a light for one of my tanks. :( But I do still have $11 in store credit, so next time I'll get some!

I also picked up another heater from Petsmart. I'll be setting up the tank tomorrow. :) Right now, Tiny Tina is in Patriot's old 4 gallon bowl, though I didn't fill it. It only has about 2 gallons of water in it right now, enough to cover her decorations and heater. I wanted to make it feel a little familiar to her, so I put in her decorations for her to hide in until tomorrow. I have an appointment in the morning, then I'll set it up for her. :)

Nice :)

but those omega one pellets are for salt water fish, not bettas.. Omega one does make a betta formula.

Do you have a thermometer for the heater?

That's what I was wondering about. It didn't say anything about specifically being for saltwater. It only said "marine" and I figured it would be okay. I couldn't find betta pellets at the LFS OR Petsmart.

I do have a thermometer. I just wanted to upgrade her from the preset heater she has right now to an adjustable. :)

I found the Omega One Betta Buffet pellets online, but I didn't see them in the store at all. But according to Petsmart, the ingredients are pretty much the same... Click hereeee
