Hello! I have been a betta mommy with my betta (Blubbers!) for a year now, and he's been surviving in a tiny little plastic tank with no filter or heater for a year now (I couldn't afford anything better, and I've felt super guilty about it.. But he was a gift). I finally have been able to upgrade him to a 10 gallon tank, filtered, heatered, and pirate themed!!
Now the problem and why I had to find this board. I'm worried about him going into a tank now. I know I want to get other fish to go in with him (a cat fish, other fish he gets along with, etc). The tank has been set up for a day or so now and I'm letting it get up to 76-80 degrees before I put him in, then I want to see how he does. If he's ready for it by Tuesday, I want to buy him some friends (PetCo gets new fish on Tuesdays), then in a couple weeks or so, get a cat fish.
My questions are, is he going to be ok transitioning? Is this a wise time line to go with? What're some other fishy friends he'll get along with?
Thanks in advance!!
