Hello all! I just discovered this wonderful site today, and I had to join.
I currently have one betta, who's probably around three and a half to four years old, and his name is Mr. Betta (creative I know, lol). I've kept him in a bowl his whole life, and I have felt really bad about it for a while, and I want to transfer him to a tank and I've got a few questions, if you don't mind answering them.
1. Should I buy a tank kit or separate pieces?
2. If I buy a tank kit, do you have any reccomendations?
3. What type of filter should I use? I've heard that corner filters are best. Is this true?
4.Will he go into much shock since he's always lived in a bowl?
5. Will I need a heater if the tank is under 5 gallons? I've heard that it can kill fish if the tank is too small.
Thank you very much in advance if anybody can answer any of these questions
