I will be leaving Walmart Sept 4 to go through USAF SF training, and I want to make a Betta care sheet so that I know when I leave someone can have the resources to properly take care of the Bettas.
As you know, they live in small cups while in the store. It is my understanding that a "container" this small should have its water changed every day, correct?
I started doing this, but I noticed after one day the water is still perfectly clear with maybe only one dropping lying around. Should we change the water everyday, or perhaps every two days?
Also, all we have for Bettas are their containers and pellets. Are two pellets twice a day sufficient?
Any advice on how to better manage the Bettas will be appreciated.
One thing I do personally is space the containers apart as far as possible so that they aren't constantly stressed by eachother.
I also place them on the higher shelves and move downward so that children can't reach them.
We stopped keeping the Bettas on shelves in the Pet aisles because they were accessible and vulnerable to customers/kids, so they are now kept besides the aquarium on shelves within our sink area where we fill bags and keep our work materials.
Thanks for any advice.
Oh, and can someone recommend the amount of water changes/ratios for 1 Gallon, 2 Gallon, 2.5 Gallon, 3 Gallon, 5 Gallon, and 10 Gallon?
I want to make a customer fact sheet as well.
