i just bought a 10 gallon tank for my betta i might be getting a divider and another fish later on but for now its just him in there. how often do i need to clean the tank??? it has a filter and lights.
he was in a 2 gallon before. that will be my new QT tank.
also what else do i need??
You definitely need a heater and a thermometer for one! Thats rreally more important than any decoratin. Other than that, I would add some more plants/decorations that are taller so your betta can feel secure swimming higher in his tank :D And is the filter baffled? Make sure the current is not too strong.
As for cleaning, I do about a 25-30% water change weekly. That seems to be the general if the tank is cycled.
Also, a water test kit may be helpful in ensuring water paramaters are consistant (Sp?)
