Hi, I just bought a betta yesterday, a blue mal who has yet to be named, and I was just wondering about general care. Petsmart (where he was purchased) saidthat all I needed was water conditioner and food. I got the color enhancing food for bettas from Topfin calledtopfin color enhancing betta bits. I feed 3-4 pellets of that at each feeding and feed 2 times per day. I used a small amount of the topfin betta water conditioner when I first filled up his bowl. I have a fish bowl that is about 1/2 gallon or so. It has rocks at the bottom and 3 fake plants. Is there anything else that I need to worry about for his basic care? he is kept on the bookshelf of my dorm room with books stacked on one side of the tank, and 2 walls thn he can look out into the room if he wants but he is way from windows and major changes in temperature or light. is there anything else that I should worry about for him? I also have a few tubifex worm cubes from aquaselect. should I feed those to him or not? any help would be appreciatd. I don't want my poor betta to suffe for my lack of knowledge.
