So the other day I bought 2 Umbra FishHotel Aquariums (http://amzn.to/q5vlCZ
) so I could buy 2 bettas. No heater, no decorations, no filter. Just some blood worms, the fish, a net and water conditioner. I wanted to get some live plants, but held off cause I just wanted to get home and set everything up and wasn't sure what to get. Got everything set up the other day and I'm loving it, but then I found this helpful website.
Now I've been reading on here and I've already ordered 2 heaters and decided to upgrade my tank, but I can't get anything too big since these are going to be on the counter between my kitchen and living room in my apartment. I'll also switch to pellets and use blood worms as a treat.
Trying to keep price and size in mind I have these 3 tanks in mind:
Tetra Water Wonders Aquarium Cube (1.5 gallon) - http://bit.ly/mX8kMf
biOrb Aquarium Kits with Lights (4 gallon) - http://bit.ly/qOV9Wf
Marineland 3-Gallon Crescent Aquarium System (3 gallon) - http://bit.ly/p3QM9n
KollerCraft AQUARIUS AquaView 360 Aquarium Kit (3-Gallon) - http://amzn.to/oemg7s
Of these the biOrb is a bit out of the price range I want to spend now and I think a big bigger then I had room for. Are there any other tanks people might want to recommend for about the same size and price combo?
All seem to come with filters and the heaters are on their way from Amazon.
So with the addition of fresh plants, filtration system and larger living conditions what is going be the recommended amount of time between water changing? I figured each week would've been fine before, but after reading it sounds like that wasn't a good idea.
Is there anything else I'm missing?
I tried to read a bunch before I started asking and thought of replying to other threads, but since I'm all over the place I figured it'd be best to just make a new thread.
