Hello! Figured I'd get this out of the way now!
As soon as the week is over, my boyfriend's little brother is surrendering his poor sweet 'school project' betta(I mentioned this in another thread) and he will finally get a decent home!
We have a ten gallon, previously housed a young leopard gecko. Currently in the process of cleaning(What's the best method? We're worried, even though he had paper towel substrate, sometimes his feces hit the bottom of the tank-so we want it super clean! Any advice? When is enough? I don't want to accidentally not clean it enough, but I also don't want to spend an entire week scrubbing the heck out of an already clean tank!)
Anyway, he'll be in the 10 gallon, like I said. Just him. We have one live plant(not sure what kind, I'll need to ask Nathan) and we can possibly get more. Have a never used coffee mug, and more decorations will follow. Of course they will all be cleaned before put into the tank!
So that I can give my boyfriend a care list, what would be the best schedule for the betta's care? How often should water changes happen/what percent, etc.. It would really help him to have a list(he works best with lists..all our animals have little notes next to them..lol! Helps when we have pet sitters!)
If you haven't seen my other post, he's a little red crowntail, very young compared to the rest in the store, and is very active! I want to make sure he gets the best most awesome home ever! :)
