I would go ahead and just do 2 50% and 1 100% per week for now- it's not that much smaller then a 1 gallon, so the extra 50% a week will be enough to keep it clean. Dose with conditioner for a full gallon to make it easier.
It's cute, and it can work as long as you can find a way to heat it and keep it stable with the temp. I would also remove just some of the white rocks so that it's more flat and closer to the bottom to give him a little more room. Otherwise, it's a cute home and it's much better then a cup :)
Sadly, all the smaller tanks always look so great lol
I hear that. I saw a pretty little 2.5 cylinder for $20 at my local petsmart the other day. My bf said something about it having a filter in the top. I'm thinking about going back and taking a second look... can't find the tank info on petsmart's website.
This threads actually been going on for a while, always popping up with new photos :)
That Marina tank, I see it at the petstore (it's $40 here) and I wish they had the same tank but in a 2g or a 3g. It's just so nice and simple!! Sadly, all the smaller tanks always look so great lol
I know what you mean! I wish they wouldn't make cute little "betta" tanks. I had the Marina .5 or .8 Gallon when I first got Chandler last year and put it on my wall. The tanks I have my guys & girls in now aren't as "cute" but they're happy, healthy and warm! So thats all I care about!
This is the 2.5g mini bow I setup for the gf. the filter has been removed, poor little guy almost drowned cuz of it once already. I need to change the heater to a proper jager. This little tetra thing is just plain doo doo. Also had to make a diffuser panel for the lighting. I apparently went a wee bit overboard with the LED's. >_<
