I couldn't decide whether to put this thread in Betta Care or the section on tank care and I didn't want to have to make two separate threads so I figured I'd ask both here.
my first question is about not being at the house for a couple of days. My family and I are going to be gone for about 5 days. we leave on a friday morning so I would feed him before I leave but then no one will be there to feed him Saturday Sunday and Monday. Anyone who's gone on trips no if It's okay that he doesn't eat until that Tuesday morning? or do I need to buy something that feeds him while I'm gone?
my second question is more tank related it's a dumb question but I wanted to make sure so I don't break anything or harm my fish. my heater has been growing A LOT of algae and its becoming a problem with flakes of algae floating everywhere. do I just unplug it and wipe it off or is there a specific way of getting rid of it? I don't want to get snails just because there maintenance on their own and I don't trust any other living being with my fish fearing he'll kill them when he sees them.
