Just wanted to find the best advice on how to set up a betta tank the proper way. I've had betta's before, but always in those little tiny tanks they sell, but after being educated by a friend on the board, I'm ready for my own!
I picked up a 5-gallon tank today, and want to get it started, so I have a few questions.
1) Should I get decorations (plants, gravel, etc.) before adding water and starting cycle of tank?
2) I got a "water conditioner sample" with the kit, will that be enough to even out the tank chemicals, or do I need a kit?
3) And what is proper food for a betta, other than the betta-pellets?
Thank you in advance, I'm so excited to have some nice betta's, and just need to find the fish! LOL
