I'm new here and new to fish and Bettas.
I got a male betta about 4 months ago and has thrived beautifully. I had him in a 1.5 gallon tank. I recently changed him to a 10 gallon tank and he's loving it.
I keep hearing I should get a couple of females and throw them in the tank, that they should get along fine, etc. I went to the pet store today and they told me I could do one female in that tank in with the male no problem. I just put her in the tank after a few hours of acclimation.
They seem OK so far, the male kept coming up to her at first (no flaring), but I I didn't realize how much bigger he is than her until I watch them next to each other now. I literally found this forum just now and after reading a few posts on here, I'm a little nervous about what I did (putting them in together), etc.
SO obviously I'm separating them before going to bed tonight, but I still have some questions about some basic care:
1. what are the "salts" I keep reading about? I just have some water conditioner for bettas... plus I have a softening system (water-loop) installed in my house.
Any other suggestions and advise is welcome...
