Kon'nichiwa, I'm new to owning a betta.

Kon'nichiwa, I'm called Hinata. I've joined this forum because I purchased a betta fish out of sympathy from the chain store known as Meijer. I hate supporting these kind of stores because most of the time they don't take the proper care of their live animals, but when I looked at this male I couldn't just let him sit there and rot. He's a yellow CT that just adores his new 10 gallon tank. I wasn't stupid when I purchased him so I bought a heater for the tank and a siphon to make cleaning a lot more simple. I had a bunch of tropical fish food from when I used to have other tropical fish that hasn't expired (I had to move to a different house which forced me to give my other fish to an old friend of mine). I'm going to be getting $20 that I can use for his tank plus the $10 that remain in my wallet. Should I get a filter or decorations for my new betta? I don't want to post a picture of him until he's comfortable in his new environment and until his tank is properly decorated. I'll post a topic in the proper section when I get the pictures. I think it's a good thing that I got a little research on bettas before actually getting one.

it's GREAT to see someone buy their first betta, and know to get them a heater! :D

bettas LOVE decorations! you can never have too many! they love exploring, and when you add new decor, it's like a whole new tank for them! :D

Well, I figured that bettas are tropical fish which means that they must need a heater to keep them warm. I'm glad that I started this off on the right foot.

Thank you for the welcome. This forum is one of the most friendly I've been a part of and I'm quite suprised. It's just another great thing about being a member on this forum.

Greetings from Alaska!

I'm not sure if bettas have different nutritional requirements then other tropical fish. I have some type of floating betta pellets. They seem to like it.

Personally, I am not a fan of filters so I would use the money on decorations but that's just me.
