I just got a betta fish a week ago. I am looking into getting another.
I have a few questions!!
Currently my betta is in a one gallon bowl with one silk plant. (he was given to me this way from a lady that works with my dad)
I want a bigger tank for him, and the next betta I get.
Im looking for a couple 5 gallon tanks with filters, lights and tops (the one I have now I keep covered so my cats cant get to him)
I am also going to get thermometers and small heaters. (hydor)
I am going to use the glass beads I think they are the same things used in Mancala games and some more silk plants.
BUT I am not sure about the water for the tanks. I planned on using bottled water like I do now. Do I have to use water conditioners or Cycle the water or anything???
And to keep variety I am going to do pellets every other day and frozen bloodworms every other day switching between the two. I read variety is good to keep from constipation. Is this too much variety?? Also he seems to turn his nose up to pellets sometimes would it be a bad idea to just stick with the bloodworms everyday if the other plan doesnt work???
Thanks guys hope it wasnt too many questions at the same time :)
