Ok...so I have just recently bought a betta (eg. 2 days ago) and it was very much an impulse buy..I saw him and was smitten!
I have very little knowledge on bettas and as I live in the midddle of the outback (in Australia) I dont have free access to a pet store.
From reading all your posts I have a feeling the guy that sold me Scarlet (my fish!) was uninformed.
My tank is an ok size..but at the moment I dont have a heater-he told me I didnt need one.Which I now think wasnt correct.
I bought a heater online which should be here in a week or so.
It is getting quite cold at night though, so I have started heating his tank with a lamp..its not ideal but I just dont want him to die..
Am I doing the right thing?
He is making bubble things at the top of the water and is very active..and a show off!!But I could do with some guidance and tips...
