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)

You will hopefully see bubblenests and happy fish with nice clean water, yummy food and fun things to do! But not all bettas make bubble nests when they are happy! :)

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!
