Well, my little brother (who is 8 years old) wanted to get a betta fish (ITS A RED SPADE) because he loved playing with mine in my room. i checked for diseases when i bought it and there were none because we got it from a private fish store which is awesome and they are not retarded like retail stores! (sry for lang if offends anyone). Of course i have to do all the work with water changes and such. anyways he got a .5 gallon tank and yes i know this is extremely cruel to the fish but i have no choice for now because my mom said that we couldn't have a bigger fish in his room yet (hoping to convince her after the fish lives healthy for at least a couple of months). So my question is about water changes. Should I do 50% water changes every Wednesday and 100% every Saturday or Sunday? I still think that this isn't enough water changes for a .5 gallon tank but im not sure. And when i do 100% water change how do i not stress out my fish because my water temps will be different whenever i will be doing them. Should i keep gallons of water in those milk gallons in my room and then use them because they will become room temp over time? i don't know, thats just a idea. O ya! it still hasn't been eating any pellets or anything, im guessing it will start eating when it gets use to the tank. Im still currently treating my Double Veil Tail with quick cure and he is alot better and its only been 2 days! o ya and i havn't named the fish yet, suggestions will be appreciated.
WOW that took awhile to type sry for it being so long ><''
