OOOOOOH, I didn't know that! I will definitely do that with the bulbs, they are going in the sun tomorrow. The bulbs didn't come with any directions whatsoever, so I just put them in and kept my fingers crossed. But I will do that! Thanks. And I do keep up with water changes and I do partials all of the time. :) Thanks so much! I was stuck between him, a turquoise male VT with enormous fins or an adorable green CT girl. I chose him though, because he looked pretty purple in the light and whenever I moved past his cup, he swam toward me and just stared at me. :) I have had him since 10/21/10. :)
Also, I know everyone says the betta-in-a-vase setup is awful, but when you do everything you are supposed to, my betta just adores it! He is always spunky and he loves flaring at his buddy, Liberty. I clean the water every few days, and I do partials daily. :P I feed him betta pellets and freeze dried bloodworms. Phew, okay, that is it. :D
