Question Finally got a heater!

Well I finally got a heater for Eddy. I also got him a critter keeper for him to swim around in, we got a new kitty and she likes to drink the water, so while i am waiting for the water to heat up and be ok for him go in, i have him in a fish bowl. i noticed he has some fuzzy white stringy looking things hanging off his fins. should i be worried?? what could it be??

I would not let the cat drink out of the fish's container. I don't think that would be too healthy for the cat or the fish.

haha yeah.. that's why i got the critter keeper, because it has a lid on it and she can't drink the water now. but i'm try to talk hubby into getting a 1.5 gallon tank that has a little filter on it. maybe for christmas ;) but should i be worried about the fuzzy stuff on the end of his fins?

A betta would be unhappy in a critter creaper. I would recommend atleast 1 gallon for a betta. You will have to clean the tank every 3 days to keep the tank clean and your betta healthy. Idk what he could have. It could be many of things. Could you describe it better?

Critter keepers come in about 3 different sizes. I have 2 1.5 gallons and 2 2.5 gallons and my fish do fine in them. You can also use a heater in them. I have a Marineland stealth visitherm, 25 watts in one and Tetra whispers(not sure what the wattage is) in the other two.

Bettas can do just fine in Critter Keepers. I keep two of mine in them. A recomended tank size is at least 2 gallons for your betta.

Don't know what the stringy things could be, maybe if you took a picture it could help?
