Hi, new here and very excited.
I've got a beautiful betta current in a one gallon tank, which I upgraded today to a five gallon.
He hasn't moved in yet, as I have a few questions..probably stupid ones, but since this is the prettiest betta boy I've ever owned, and want to care for him as well as I can I've got a couple questions.
So my new tanks a five gallon..I don't particularly want to get a filter but I will if i MUST. I realize he needs a heater and I picked a TOPFIN one up today but I'm returning it tomorrow because all the reviews I read were terrible.
I'm thinking a 50 watt. This should be okay from what I've read on here so far...yes/no?
I've got some live plants, and I'll get mroe tomorrow when I return the heater.
Should I place him in the tank once set up with all the water he's currently in?
Should I puyt him in first, THEN put the heater in and get it going? This seems logical to me, but I thought I'd confirm with smarter betta owners.
and my last question is about his coloring, but I'll wait until I get some pictures... He's cappucino colored and I've never seen one like him before so I was curious as to what everyone would classify him as.
Ok I think thats it. THanks for the advice!!
