I love my fish so I thought it would be a good place to come :)
I am planning to get a Betta in August and had some questions and products I wanted to check were ok :)
The tank I am thinking of is 18L (3.96 Gallons) Will this be big enough for a single male Betta??
I found this conditioner and I wanted to check this would be fine to use for the tank: Tap Water Conditioner 120ml by API | Pets at Home
i chose this one as the tank will be filled with tap water as it is easiest and most convenient for me :)
I am struggling to find a food to feed the betta, any recommendations? (I need to be able to get it to the UK if it is from a website)
What should I put into the tank? (any recommendations on what your Bettas like)
For the 4 Gallon tank (well 3.96 but for .04 I think I can call it 4Gallons) will doing a 50% water change once a week be enough (there will be a filter) or should I do a different % or more often?
My bedroom is usually around 22C is that warm enough or should I buy a heater? or I could move them to another spot I have that is just under a meter away from the radiator.
As I will be most likely buying the tank (If I can afford to) and food before I go on holiday for 2 weeks so I can get the Betta when I get back, would it be ok to have it set up and filtering when I am away to get the filter cycling and used (it would be started a week before I leave just to check there is no faults that could damage my house while i'm away, should I just do that instead and not let it run when there is nobody in my house?)
Thanks In advance :)
