Hi all! this may be a very stupid question but i'm new to Bettas (and obsessed) and want to do everything right, sooo... If i used a 2.5-3 gal. aquarium with no filter but did use a heater, when i change the water (both 50% and 100%) what do i do with my betta? i would think moving him to a small holding bowl (when doinf 100% changes) would be ok for a while but i would be concerned b/c the bowl water would not be the same temp as the heated water... i don't want to shock him by changing temperatures so much, should i preheat the bowl water?
My boy is currently in a large bowl (Planning on moving him to larger tank) and i have two of everything (bowl, gravel, etc) so when i change his water now i set his new bowl up just like the other one and let the temp settle so they are the same..
