My Betta just died :( I buried him this morning.
Right now I'm in the process of removing all the water from the tank.
Over spring break (The first day of which is three weeks from today) I want to divide up my 10 gallon and put new Bettas in.
I'm assuming I should:
Rinse the plants and gravel REALLY well in hot water.
Rinse the filter in hot water and replace the filter media (I have a sponge baffling it and then I'm assuming I should replace the cartridge as well)
Rinse the heater really well in hot water as well
Rinse the tank in hot water
Is that all I need to do? I want it to be safe for new Bettas. As far as I know my Betta died because of his age, not an illness.
