Thanks I will definitely look that up... right now the tank has a 15W hood light (to heat the top of the water) and I use my mom's work spot light (to heat the bottom of the tank), it seems to work..I keep the tank at 80 degrees F.

but im just worrying if the spot light blinds or stresses him out, I keep the spot light reasonably far from the tank and I move it around so it doesn't heat the same spot.. I've been doing this for a month and he's still thriving so i guess I just worry too much

I am curious to what everyone uses in their tanks. I only use tap water an AquaSafe (Tetra brand) I don't need to mess with any other chemicals do I? Like pHs stuff, and whatever else there is.

No, all you need is water conditioner. I use Prime and Aquasafe.

i didnt hav etime to read all the pages but i have one question that is al over the place. How much and how often should i feed my betta Fudd? i just got him yesterday and i dont know how much to feed him. also what fish is compatible with a male betta? and at petco they said that females are comunitty fish and i have swordtails and zebra danios(i heard mixed things abouth them) and would a female be suitible for that tank and also i read on the first page that bottom feeders are campatable is that true? and 1 mre... i have a 2 gallon tank and i am wondering should i get aheater or a filter(an anoying 360o one)( so a heater might be the only possible thing)
