Well, I've had my betta for 2 weeks now, and my new one for 3 days now, and I want to make them as happy and comfortable as possible. hopefully award me with a bubble nest? suggestions please :)
Kaida made me a bubble nest after I fed him about six pellets and let him flare at his reflection for a little bit. Kalona is just happy nomming on the leaf of his bamboo plant...(I'm not kidding I went to feed him and saw him nomming on it. XD)
oh, ok :) because my betta moonstone made me a bubble nest on the third day i had him, then never saw one again..... my water seems very clear, i havent changed it in about 2 days.... but, its still very clear! i want to get them a bigger tank, but my dad keeps asking that lady at petco, and all she says is bs. >:( and my dad believes her because he thinks all the fish department ppl are "professionals"... :(
Well, your tank for now is okay, because it is 1.25 gallons per fish, with a filter! That is definitely better than most bowls and things. She is not correct, but compared to what she probably reccomends to most new betta owners, that is a mansion. ;)
My booklet said monthly, but because you have 2 fish in yours I'd do it every 2 weeks minimum. :) And ugh, yes, I can't stand pet store people at Petco. The petsmart people near me are smarter though, but petco...? No way. This one lady there reccomended a half gallon tank, when there was a 1 gallon with an airstone 5 feet away with an airstone... sigh. I mean, the 1 gallon isn't perfect! But it's better than a 1/2 gallon bowl! Ugh, people. One day I'm going to work at a petstore and actually reccomend the right supplies to people!
