Like a lot of people, I'm on a budget however I'd still like to proceed in getting another Betta fish. I was looking into 10gal tanks but they look to be too big for the location I'd be placing the tank (width not length it's about 7in.). Picture of location below. (please excuse the Rice Krispies in the background)
Now I was considering a 5gal tank and I found one for a decent price + comes with some of the stuff I'd need >Here<.
I don't think this set has a heater so I'd have to buy that separately and I read the reviews that the filter isn't that great but I'd give it a try. I'm just curious if I'd be able to divide it so I can have 2 male Betta's in there? If that's doable I'd like to design each side differently. Match the gravel to the colors of each Betta and put in some pretty fake plants. I'd like to have both real and fake plants at some point, but I'm not sure how to do that and I'd like to research on that before I go about it. If anyone has any suggestions on that I'd really appreciate it. :) I read someone suggested going to a 2nd hand store for like a mug or cup as a make-shift cave. I was thinking of doing that looking for something antique or do the color scheme like the gravel. If I'm missing anything in this plan please let me know. Also I know you're suppose to use a water conditioner. I've been using drop tabs in the bowl called "Bowl Buddies", but I'd like some feedback on a brand or better quality conditioner for Betta's. Thank you.
