I'm planning to get my fish on Saturday, so I thought I better ask this before I get him.
The pet store I buy my fish at, Aquarium World, keeps their bettas in 1.5 to 2 gallon tanks, which is MUCH better than most, and they also have heating. My problem is that, of course, they will quickly cool down on the way home in that little plastic bag. If I put them in heated water will they be OK with the change, or should I gradually heat the tank? I'm just worried that if I take too long they'll die from the cold.
Oh, and I decided what I'm going to name him! I'm going to go with Desmond from the Beatles song.
