So Happy! Need Suggestions!

Yay! My mom says if I pay for it, I can get another tank! I already know which one, a 5.5 gallon :). I was thinking either CT or HM, maybe chocolate colored. Any tail or color suggestions are welcome!

Hehe, here's the best part: you can divide a 5.5 gallon easy. I have two bettas in my 5.5g and they're doing fine.

Really?! That's awesome! In my current 5 gallon with one betta, I do a 100% once a week, I know it destroys beneficial bacteria but it's all I have time for. Could I do the same thing if I divide my new one?

Wait a minute. For the 1st month do 2 WCs weekly. Your tank should be cycled by then. Then do 25% changes weekly. Read up on the nitrogen cycle though. This was a crash course in the Nitrogen Cycle.

OOO! Chocolates are soo pretty! I really like Yellow, Chocolate, White, and Mustard Gas HMs!

I bid you good luck!

I'm getting a 15 gallon for Christmas for my 3 boys, and a 20 gallon for my B-day!


Anyway, good luck!

(I don't cycle water, I do 100% on my two .5 gallons every other day, and I clean Philips on Wednesday... but it depends on you...)

Thanks guys, but I probably won't divide it. I prefer to give each betta a lot of space, i prefer five gallons but I would use a 2.5 if I had to

Umm, you can't cycle a 0.5 G. It won't hold a cycle. Only 4g + can I think...

No, I'm on vacation right now, but I told my dad about it, so he had to ruin it. " You want a five gallon for a BETTA! No, you want a 20 gallon with tiger barbs! Me: " So? You want a 20, you pay for it, this is my money for everything" Dad: " What do you mean? Your the one who wants a tank!" So, in other words, im getting it anyway :D
