Hi, I am new here and I would like to ask for a little advice. I currently have one red/blue betta (BettaBob) who I bought from Petsmart about 4 weeks ago. I keep him in a small fish bowl which the person there told me was the best thing to do. Its a very simple setup; I have nothing but the bowl and some blue gravel at the bottom. I know he doesn't have much room, but he seems to like it much better than the little cup he was living in before.
My dad told me he has a fish tank that he would give me. It is either 5 or 10 gallons. I won't be able to get it until I visit him in July. But once I've gotten that, I was hoping to move my betta into the tank and get a few neon tetras as tankmates. I've also decided I would like to get a green female betta and possibly breed the two later.
My question is, should I just fill the new tank with the new fish, and keep BettaBob in the little fish bowl, or should I put him in the tank and not worry about getting the female (or even put her in the little fish bowl). Any and all comments are appreciated!
