Nah, that's plenty small enough. So you'll only use 1.5 teaspoons NOT tablespoons he'll be fine ^_^ Just remember to dissolve the salt first and add little bit at a time over half hour at least if not more to acclimate him to the salt.

And you never answered about my last question, do they have heaters? I didn't see any in the tank in the passed pictures.

Oh, ok. Do I have to remove everything in the tank, or can I just leave them in there?

And no I don't. I tried to look for some, but all the ones I have found aren't adjustable. I know it is better to be able to adjust the temperature, so I didn't buy them. Since it is still summer, I am not so frantic to find one yet, but when it gets closer to winter and I still don't have one, I plan to ask someone to order one for me or at least look around harder to find one.

Mkay, that's fine about the heaters, it just might not be as easy to heal up his fins is all.

You can leave anything silk plants/other decor. Salt will only effect live plants which I'm certain you don't have any of so yes, you can leave everything in although it might be easier to remove the gravel for the 100% changes everyday, gravel just gets to be a pain in the butt after a while is all. You can just let it dry out on a towel or something, it will be fine

Oh, and Hoshi (the new betta) has been able to eat some pellets now. He still seems to have some difficulty swallowing, but he is getting better. And I bought some freeze dried blood worms and they both love it! :)

Oh great! Sounds good ^_^

Just careful with the Freeze-Dried stuff is all, yes it's high in protein but it can also promote bloating so just once a week as a treat is fine but I wouldn't risk it more often is all.
