Unfiltered 10 gal

How often do I need to change the water on a 10 gal with one Betta and no live plants?

In a 10g unfiltered tank with 1-Betta...I would make 1-50% a week with vacuum and a 100% every 2-3 months...provided that you are not overfeeding and removing any uneaten food-I would also make partial water changes with any behavior changes....

I recommend the dropper bottle of Seachem Prime. It cost like 8 dollars but lasts ssooooo long. Also it is so easy to measure it: just squeeze out two drops for gallon and you instantly have betta-safe water :)

I am not sure, I got mine at my local fish store. I am not sure if Petco has it but try your local fish store, they will most likely have it.

The closest stores that sell fish are a walmart supercenter and an earl may 45 minutes away. Poor little Dobby had to suffer an hour and a half ride from a petsmart :(
