I'm going to be getting me a betta this week with the Marina Betta kit. You can find it on Petsmart's website.
I have previously owned a betta but that was about 10 years ago, so I don't really remember how to care for one.
First of all, what kind of frogs/snails creature things can go in a tank with a betta? I know an African dwarf frog will do, but they get pretty big and I don't want something that will hog all the space from my betta in the tank.
Secondly, should I get a male or a female betta? I had a male betta for my first, and I'm wondering if I should get a female instead.
Thirdly, is it true that if you stick your hand in the water, your betta will let you take it out of the water to stroke it?
Lastly, Can their tanks go on a high shelf? There's a spot on my bookcase I cleaned off for the tank but I'm not sure if bettas can really handle being that high up off the ground.
Thanks for reading!
