Thanks for posting, that really helped me out alot. :) I just got my betta fish from my sister, and I have never had one before, so I was really glad to find this. I just have one question... I don't have a heater for my betta, but I keep the room her tank is in really warm. Is that okay? I don't want her to freeze, but I don't think I will be able to get a heater any time soon.

If u keep the room really warm, that should be ok for now. U may also shine a desk lamp on the tank to warm up the water, but we really recommend a heater.

So u might wanna save for one, they are not that expensive and plays a huge part in ur Betta's health so in the end it's worth it.

A lot of very helpful information. We've had our betta about 2 months now and he is hands down my favorite fish. What a personality they have!

I work at Petsmart and the "blue stuff" we put in is a certain type of water conditioner specifically for the betas. I assume other pets stores do the same too.
Water conditioner is used to ease stress in a fish. I guess the Bettas need more conditioning since they're in such small containers, which are also usually cold. :/

This is a great sticky. I just got my betta yesterday at 8pm and he's doing absolutely great! He's swimming, he's happy and of course, thanks to your guide, he's healthy. :)

I have a question.

I read on there that it says I have to have a 2 gallon or more. I saw a kit for a 2.5 gal at Petsmart for $25. They had a 1 gal for $20, and my mom and sister INSISTED I got the cheaper one, even though it was my money I was spending. I don't know if I kept the recipt, but if I did, should I take the kit back? (I didn't open the conditioner or the food). I used the Filter cartridge, though. But does that matter? What should I do?
