Okay, so right now I have a 2.5 gallon unfiltered tank and a 1.75 gallon bowl. I have two bettas.
I am wanting to create less work and less stress on the tank in the long run. So after Christmas I am going to treat myself to a 5 or 10 gallon tank with a separator for both of my bettas.
If you have a filtered tank, how often must you do water changes? Does the filter take care of a lot of the dirty work? Will less maintenance be needed on the tank?
I love working on my tank but I just have so much overtime and it's hard to squeeze in those biweekly water changes. And a tank with a filter and light seems so much more appealing.
With the 5 or 10 gallon tank, would it be safe to put a sucker fish with them? I heard it can be bad for the bettas fins.
I am looking for the best setup with the least work. I know it sounds lazy, but I guess it is. :P I still do everything I need, but I want something more efficient. Anyone recommend a tank that goes good with a betta divider?
