Hey so my betta recently passed away and i want to get another betta but im not sure if i should go with another male or get a few females (if thats possible) i have a 10 gallon tank with a heater and filter. however with my last betta i never used aquarium salt and am wondering what a good brand is.
also i do realize i will need to clean the tank with vinegar and all of the toys in the tank need cleaning. also i was told that with the filter i shouldn't replace the filter to help with the tank cycling. but will i want to get a new filter since i will be cleaning out the tank and getting a new fish?
also with the water cycling should a wait a few weeks before a buy a new betta or what? basically it all comes down to my last betta was a beginner betta for me and now i want to get more advanced and help ensure that my next betta will live longer than 8 months.
