It's $2.69 at Petsmart here in the U.S. I have no idea what it would cost where you are.

It will live on flakes - especially if they are flakes designed for Bettas. You can also mix it up and feed flakes some days and pellets others.

I also misinformed you above about the capfull of water conditioner. With that brand, one cap full treats HALF a gallon. Not a whole gallon. Everything else was right though. Sorry!

Yeah, there is nothing wrong with mixing flakes and pellets. Its good to have a variety.

*he!! the long fins usually indicate male. Sometimes males have short fins tho. the only way to really tell is look for the gravid spot

i bought an eclipse 3 gallon tank. it comes with a light and filter and you can probably find it on sale for about $35.
i've used both aquasafe and bettasafe as a water conditioner. it takes about 7 drops per gallon; not very much, at all.

i agree that the heater is very important. You can get a 25 watt for that size tank, though I also use a 50 watt in one of my 3 gal tanks and it works just fine and will be enough in case i have room to upgrade tank size in the future.

Good luck!
