Ducky says hi. (first betta, new member and a total noob)

k. so i got this today. and he is in a tank (22 by 32 by 20 cm) i duno how much gallons that is. i just filled it up almost all the way haha. i am planning to get a heater for it since in canada...the winter here is gona b a totall killer for my new fishy. so yes. i am to feed him once each day, 2-3 pellets of betta food. and to change his water...every..2 weeks....or so i was told by the pet store. but yes. he shall be called ducky, and i will wait for him to make bubble nests!

by the way...can any1 tell me around how many gallons i've got?? and if this tank and environment is suitable enough?

(fake turtles incase ur wondering)

sounds like a 2 gallon tank,
Water change every two weeks is not enough,
You will most likely end up with a sick fish if you adhere to that regiment.
You Should be doing a 25 to 50% water change a minimal of twice a week,

He might like a plant or something to hide behind/play in so he doesn't feel so exposed. :)

You can get a real plant, or a soft fake one, a cave type decoration, or just use something like a candle votive or an old ceramic statue. That's not totally necessary, though.

You can also probably fill it up higher. Haha. It's a huge pet peeve of mine when my aquarium's water level isn't right up to the top. I don't know why... Hhaa.

Nice looking betta. Yeah, I'd vote on getting a fake plant. You could also get gravel for the bottom or more glass gems. I like the turtles!

Bettas are excellent jumpers so you definitely need a lid.
