Electro's new tank!! Warming up as we speak... it has to be double the size of his old tank, I have no idea how many litres/gallons it is yet. Got to be at least 20 litres. I definitely added 50% new water. Electro will love his new space! Poor guy is in the plastic bag as I'm warming the water, hopefully that will mean less shock for him. I really don't know how he is surviving all this.
So the tank looks pretty bare now, I put in a little tunnel at the back for him to hide in. He normally hides behind the rock but it will be a little close to the heater now and I don't want him stuck! The water temperature is currently at 64 degrees, bit chilly for him but unfortunately that's what he has been living in.
Luckily I found this forum. I'm heating it to 79 degrees now, and may take it up to 82 degrees next week.
When I was looking at the second hand fish tanks I told the lady it was for a betta fighting fish and she told me all about how they can live in these little small tanks because they used to live in puddles etc... was at least able to tell her nooo they need big tanks and are tropical. I felt so smart, but really you guys all are.
Next stop e-bay for a light and a full testing kit. Then I guess it will be some fertiliser for the plant!
