That's a great idea Ezzie. Maybe I'll try something like that. I LOVE your white betta, they look like flowers. :)
I have my bucket and tubing all ready to go and I am terrified! I don't know whether to put Marcus in another bowl, while I clean and try to take bad parts off the plants, or leave him in. I am so scared of the suction and him getting harmed, but I am also scared of stressing him out if I put him in something else... He already seems to get stressed easily. I was thinking of putting him in the cup I got him in so put it next to his tank.
I swear to you, He saw it and flew like a bat out of hell to the other side of the tank, and just started swimming around all out of control.. He is so smart. I don't want to traumatize him.
So now I guess,my question is, leave him in the tank while doing a 50% change and pruning the plants and trying to clean some of the gravel, or take him out since the tank is pretty small, (I don't want the suction to get too close to him)??? What do you all do?
