That's great! :)


I have a Marineland 3 Eclipse system & it's great, you will have to baffle the filter though since it is kinda strong for a betta... I did this with a rubber band and a piece of tank sponge (.50 for 2 feet of it). I don't have a heater in this...The hood light keeps it around 79-80 when room temp is 75-76.

Also, on Walmart.com they have the Hawkeye aquarium kits...they don't come with heaters though...the 5G Hex is $30 & has good reviews, they also make a 2.5G.

I'm sorry. =[
I was at petco today and most of the VT bettas were very bloated and floating towards the top swimming sideways. Very sad.
If he has passed you should return him and either get your money back or a different fish.
