If you're using Photobucket (as I am) all you have to do is paste the IMG code into your post. So [IMG*]http://i1243.photobucket.com/albums/gg543/magnum96/IMG_2778.jpg[/IMG*] (stars by me)

2. What kind of filters would be good?

3. Would a lotus plant be good with this set-up? if not please suggest some.

4. Would i need a Heater? I live in the Philippines and we only have Rainy, Hot and cold season. In the cold season the atmospheric temp is around 21-29C (70-84F)

Hpoing to hear some suggestions from you guys thanks (this is my first post after days of just reading around hehe..)

Los Angeles in an upstairs apartment; so more of a desert climate. :)

Ah, okay. Probably warm enough, then. I still think you should have thermometers and I agree that they need more horizontal swimming room.

I myself live in steamy FL and I still have a heater in Spike's tank. Partially because me and hubs HATE the heat and keep the house at a constant 73F.

XxBettaLoverxX Just because the bettas have built a bubble nest doesn't mean all their care is taking care of. They could just be ecstatically happy to get out of those dirty cups and into a clean and bit bigger home.
I've had them for nearly six months. I only use pure spring water and keep the tanks sparkling clean. They get lots of attention and dine on very high-quality, varying foods.

ROFL
That has got to be one of the most funniest lies I've ever heard.
It is very untrue. They LIVE in water, so how would they drown? xD
Just saying.

You also shouldn't be using spring water for them. It has unnecessary minerals that would not do them any good and may even harm them. The best water for them is straight from the tap added with the correct amount of water conditioner.

Maybe you could make a thread to have us give you the correct information. You were fed alot of lies. And I'm quite certain the food you were told to be of "very high-quality" is not even near medium quality.

Pet stores tell their customers alot of lies just to sell products. When I got my guinea pig I was told such lies. I was told those little yogurt treats were great for him. Very healthy n such. Turns out it is full of dairy and sugar that my guinea pig does NOT need. I was also told this type of food that had seeds, colored stuff and stuff I'm not even sure what really it is was supposed to be VERY healthy for my guinea pig. Wrong again. My guinea pig can choke on the seeds. Not to mention he doesn't know to open them in order to eat them. There are other reasons and lies I was told. But you get the gest.
