But I want to get a bigger tank for him. So I went to Walmart and looked at what they had, and I found a 10 gallon fish tank set that comes with a hood and a filter. If you need specifics, it's the Aqua Culture Home Aquarium Starter Kit 10, for like, $30. I'm planning on buying a heater, and some Tetras to put in the tank with him, and maybe a female betta. What kind of tetras should I get, and how many? How should I introduce them? Should I put the tetras, or my betta in the tank first?
Do you mean to say that you want to put Ciel (male betta, correct?) in a ten gallon with a female betta
? This is a big no-no. Never put male and female bettas together, they are not compatible, and will most likely kill each other. If the don't kill each other, they might spawn and make hundreds of babies you can't care for :/
The only instance in which this could work is in a tank at least 50 gallons, preferably more.
If that is not what you meant to say, please disregard this post :)
