Neptune's got his own plants now!

Yup, we got him plants and he enjoys it! Also got a sticky thermometer to measure the temp. His treat of blood worms is on Sunday (the day we have our BBQ )
Next up: The heater for his bowl... and some decoratives that we can keep swapping so he doesn't get bored.

That close up of him was scary and cute :P.

Scary cuz it shocked me, but so cute.

How big is his bowl? A small filter (I prefer corner filters) would be good too.

He's a big showoff! Point a camera at him and he's all ready to pose!
We've put him in what we think is a 2.5 gallon bowl. He doesn't seem too perturbed on space; I guess the temp of 74F is a bit cold for him. Getting him a mini heater tomorrow.
Do you think a filter is necessary? I though filters are a no-no for small/medium bowls?

They arent no-no's but they arent "must haves". As long as you keep up on water changes you should be fine.

Filters aren't really necessary for bettas. I don't know if you can put a filter in a 1-2 gallon bowl or not.

thanks IonBaller07. The idea was to keep his moving space as vast as possible without inconveniencing him.

If you do not have a filter, around 50% of water should be changed around... oh, let's say four days, depending on the size of the bowl. Your bowl seems like it could have 50% changed every three days, maybe a little less often but around that area. You should also fully clean out the bowl around every 1-2 months
